Proctor & Gamble, the consumer goods manufacturer, plans to double the amount of recycled resin it uses in plastic packaging by 2020.

P&G's sustainability goals also include:

  • ensuring that 90 per cent of its packaging is recyclable or that programmes are place to create the ability to recycle it.
  • working across its supply chain to develop the capability by 2020 to replace top petroleum-derived raw materials with renewable materials as cost and scale permit.
  • reducing water used in its manufacturing facilities by an added 20 per cent per unit of production on top of the 70 per cent it saved between 2002 and 2012.

P&G has 12 environmental sustainability goals towards its vision of 100 per cent renewable energy use, 100 per cent renewable or recycled materials for all products and packaging, and zero consumer and manufacturing waste going to landfill.

Since establishing these goals in 2010, P&G now has 70 zero-waste manufacturing sites.
