Procter & Gamble releases goal, net zero GHG emissions by 2040


Earlier this month, Procter & Gamble announced an ambition to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across the supply chains and operations by 2040 from raw material to retailers.

P&G Global Communications told The Journal that the ambition to have zero emissions by 2040 is inclusive of all plants, including the one in Berkeley County.
The official website says that the company has also set science-based interim targets for 2030 to keep the goal on track.

“The climate crisis affects every home and family, everywhere in the world. The majority of consumers globally now want brands they buy to help them live a more environmentally conscious lifestyle,” the project description states. “P&G is a company deeply rooted in science, and the climate crisis requires bold goals supported by credible, science-based actions. Our actions on climate began over a decade ago, and we know there is more work to do. Our net-zero ambition reaffirms our priorities to reduce emissions now, with the tools available to us today, as well as innovate toward continued reductions in the future. Our new Climate Transition Action Plan outlines our comprehensive efforts to accelerate climate action throughout our value chain.”
