Doing good is in our DNA
For generations, we’ve supported consumers and communities through unexpected challenges. We’ve been stepping up for more than 180 years and will continue to push ourselves to do more. The extraordinary events of 2020 have made it clear that brands and companies have a responsibility to society and the world around us. P&G is determined to Lead with Love and to make 2021 the year we all come together to do more and do better for communities, equality and our planet.
P&G commits to 2,021 Acts of Good
Over the last year, we’ve witnessed beautiful moments of human kindness and have come together to support each other for the greater good. As we turn the page to 2021, we want to grow the reach and impact of these positive acts, shaped by the love and compassion we have for each other. That’s why, through P&G brands and P&G people, we’re committing to 2,021 acts of good for 2021. And we’re inviting our employees, partners and the consumers we serve to join us.
We believe that even the smallest acts of good can make the world a better place. Please join us and #LeadWithLove at www.pggoodeveryday.com.

Equality & inclusion
At P&G, we know that an equal world is a better world — for everyone. We aspire to create a company and a world where equality and inclusion is achievable for all.
Recognizing a new moment of urgency in our society we stepped up our ongoing efforts to advance equality especially at this moment for Black and Brown Americans.
We joined forces with Be My Eyes - a unique platform which connects sighted volunteers with the blind and low-vision community to help navigate everyday life.
Environmental sustainability has been a part of our business for decades. In 2018, we took a hard look and refocused our energy toward 2030, with a new set of goals and an embrace of new practices intended not just to reduce our footprint and conserve precious resources, but to help restore the world, ultimately leaving it better than we found it.
P&G’s Ambition 2030 aims to enable and inspire positive impact while creating value for the Company and consumers.

Serving five billion people gives our brands the unique opportunity to delight consumers through superior product performance and to promote conversations, influence attitudes, inspire behavior change and drive positive impact on society and the environment.
Our Purpose, Values and Principles (PVPs) are the foundation of who we are.
Our Purpose is to improve consumers’ lives in small but meaningful ways, and it inspires our people to make a positive contribution every day. Our Values of Integrity, Leadership, Ownership, Passion for Winning and Trust shape how we work with each other and with our partners. And our Principles articulate our deliberate approach to conducting work every day.
We know that P&G employees believe in the personal and business value of this PVP foundation — our PVPs are consistently cited in our annual employee survey as the number one aspect of our culture that employees would not change. Our philosophy is that a reputation of trust and integrity is built over time, earned every day and provides lasting value for our stakeholders.
Our Commitment to #BeCrueltyFree
We are calling for an end to all animal testing of cosmetic products globally, and we’re proud to partner with Humane Society International’s #BeCrueltyFree Campaign to advance that vision.
Our support of #BeCrueltyFree is another step in our long-term commitment to make animal testing obsolete. Our journey began over 40 years ago through ongoing research, investment and partnerships to develop and promote the use of alternatives to animal testing. These efforts have contributed to the greater good, enabling us and others to develop products that have not been tested on animals. Our contributions include:
Investing almost $460 million over 40 years in alternatives to animal testing, our researchers pioneering over 25 non-animal methods, publishing more than 1,000 scientific articles.
Partnering with leading international animal welfare organizations, academia, and industry coalitions to to promote use of non-animal, cruelty-free methods around the world.
Advocating for public use of non-animal methods and adoption by scientists and policy makers around the world for over 25 years.
