Procter & Gamble Announces 44 Of Its Factories Worldwide Produce Zero Waste

April 2, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble will announce that 44 of its manufacturing facilities in 20 countries produce zero waste. Efforts to reduce waste as a company-wide strategy began when a team in Frankfurt, Germany, noticed how much P&G was spending on waste management and proposed that leveraging scale of its purchasing could help reduce waste-related costs. P&G transformed the team into a global task force focused on creating solutions to reuse the 4 percent of materials that were turning into waste. Examples of recycling efforts include reformulation of 600 tonnes of excess Fairy detergent into industrial cleaners for road signs and trucks and transformation of razor cartridges from the Venus line of disposable razors into broom handles.
