76% EMISSIONS REDUCTION
We have reduced our energy use across our plants over the last twelve years by more than 359,000 GJs (Gigajoule), enough energy to power more than 16 million homes for 1 year. We've also reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 76% in the same period; that is equivalent to more than 65,000MT (Metric Tonnes)*.
100% RENEWABLE PURCHASED ENERGY
And that’s just the start. We are committed to keep reducing our emissions by at least 50% by 2030 through the adoption of 100% renewable purchased electricity, and further electrifying our business.

Reducing water consumption
We plan to achieve a 35% reduction in water consumption used at our Gillette plants over the next decade, while also helping you do the same at home. Find out more.
Designing better products
We design our products with open blade architecture, so they don’t need much water to clean. Innovative approaches like this help you save on water use at home.
We currently send zero manufacturing waste to landfill from our plants* and plan to sustain this important effort.

Did You Know? Easy Ways to Reduce Your Impact at Home
Our mission to help improve our environmental impact doesn’t stop at the store shelf. We’re also providing easy and actionable advice for how consumers can save energy and water at home while grooming with Gillette products.
Alongside P&G, we also participate in global alliances like the 50L Home Coalition to continue to learn new ways to reduce environmental impact at home.
