Procter & Gamble Seeks To Cut Carbon Dioxide Emissions, Lower Supply Chain Costs

September 28, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble Co. announced plans to reduce its global carbon dioxide emissions by about 2.9 million metric tons and cut its supply chain costs by $6 billion by adopting strategies, such as cheaper packaging materials and lower shipping costs. For example, P&G replaced diesel fuel with compressed natural gas for the fleet of trucks and forklifts at the company's factory in Mehoopany, Pennsylvania. Incidentally, the manufacturing plant is located on the banks of the Susquehanna River, an area known for confirmed natural gas deposits. P&G's lease agreement with Citrus Energy Corp. to drill natural gas wells on its property enabled the consumer goods company to replace 10 billion cubic feet of natural gas it used to buy from Gulf Coast refineries with local and cheaper gas.
