Around the world, our teams are dedicated to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and energy usage for a better and cleaner tomorrow.
At P&G, we are committed to doing our part to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that impact climate change. Our efforts to increase our use of renewable energy will be critical in helping us achieve our new goal to reduce absolute greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2020. We have worked with World Wildlife Fund to understand the importance of science-based goals and have taken several steps in 2015 to help reduce our greenhouse gas and energy footprint:
We also signed specific pledges to show we are taking voluntary action to drive renewable and reduce deforestation:
Here are what some of our other plants are doing to reduce their energy footprint.
Our Beauty Care plant in Ireland revamped from top to bottom, installing energy efficient lighting, adding ultrasonic detection to identify and repair compressed air leaks, and eliminating steam leaks to drive both energy and cost savings. Since 2010, the site reduced energy consumption by 12%, CO2 emissions by 16%.
In Mehoopany, PA., USA, our plant self-generates 100% of the site’s electrical needs in addition to a significant amount of steam and hot air that is used to dry our Bounty and Charmin products. This project, which was three years in the making, allows P&G’s largest facility to move from purchased electricity (coming from a utility supply heavily dependent on coal) to substantially cleaner electricity produced from natural gas. This project helped reduce CO2 emissions by more than 120,000 metric tons per year.
Our Gillette World Shaving Headquarters in Boston, MA. USA, is one of the largest blades and razors manufacturing facilities in the world. Over 60 conservation projects have been completed since 2010, saving enough electricity to power over 1,700 average U.S. homes for a year. To help achieve breakthrough results, the site has created innovative sustainability partnerships with the local electricity provider, universities, and the City of Boston.
