Unilever, Procter & Gamble Announce Sustainability Updates

June 4, 2012: 10:20 PM EST
Consumer goods companies Unilever and Procter & Gamble released updates on their respective sustainability programs. Unilever installed waste-water recycling facilities, which can process 1,300 tons of reclaimed water each day, and a biomass furnace designed to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 15,000 tons each year at its Hefei industrial park in Central China. For its part, Procter & Gamble announced it aims to achieve 30 percent renewable energy use, replace 25 percent of petroleum-derived raw materials with renewable or recycled materials, reduce packaging by 20 percent per consumer use, and to reduce disposed-of waste to less than 0.5 percent by the end of 2020.
