Procter & Gamble's Sustainability Efforts Help Bottom Line In UK

November 14, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble cut by half the environmental impact of its business operations in 2002–2011 by reducing carbon emissions by 53 percent and using 52 percent less energy and 58 percent less water, according to Huw Waters, P&G product supply director in the UK. Claiming that the sustainability efforts have not been acts of charity, the company asserts that the changes in its supply chain have helped P&G reduce costs and improve its relationships with its partner supermarkets. Profitability and sustainable logistics should "go hand in hand," according to Waters. In the UK, P&G delivers about 7 percent of its products to retailers, such as Tesco. P&G also has a truck-sharing deal with Tesco, which the company plans to duplicate with other retailers.
