At P&G, our business is founded on three simple ideas: to lead, to innovate, and to do so responsibly. These foundations have been consistent since our company was founded by an Englishman and an Irishman over 180 years ago and continue to define our business today. We aspire to be the leader of our industry and of every product category in which we compete, leading thinking that shapes the future. We embed innovation as the lifeblood of our company and utilise technology that powers the way we build our brands. All of this is built upon the foundation of our Purpose, Values and Principles which has remained consistent since our business began.
Recently, our Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Northern Europe, Tom Moody, sat down with Business Reporter as part of its ‘Best of British Business’ series to discuss all things P&G. The conversation covers a wide range of topics, from our company origins to our rich heritage in innovation, looking at the global innovation that stems from the UK, in particular from our Gillette Research & Development centre in Reading.
Tom discusses our mission to be a Force for Growth so that we can be a Force for Good in the world we live in – from providing support to those in need through both product and financial donations as part of our Community Impact work; to championing intersectional Equality & Inclusion — in recognition that our differences are what unite us and make us stronger; to continuing to set ambitious Environmental Sustainability targets that enable us to play our part in protecting the planet we share.
