Procter & Gamble, Unilever, Other FMCG Companies Expand Efforts To Reduce Waste

November 12, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Fast moving consumer goods companies, including Procter & Gamble and Hindustan Unilever, are adopting zero waste policies to improve their sustainability and bottom lines in India. P&G’s manufacturing sites in India are among its 45 sites worldwide that have achieved zero-waste status, in the process, creating more than $1 billion in value for the company. In India, P&G reuses waste to manufacture liquid soap and incense sticks. Unilever claimed it has saved €10 million and avoided wasting another €186 million by reducing waste disposal at its factories worldwide by as much as 50 percent in 2012 from 2008 levels. Also, the company plans to implement 100 waste-reduction ideas from its employees in 2013.
