Gillette Environmental Impact and Sustainability
Our mission is to provide you with the best possible grooming products, while taking significant steps to reduce our carbon footprint. We are focused on developing innovative products and packaging that deliver exceptional grooming experiences in a sustainable way.
Commitment to reduce our carbon footprint
Did you know that the majority of consumers globally now want the brands they buy to help them live a more environmentally conscious lifestyle? And the science is clear — we need to take urgent, decisive action. At Gillette, we want to make it easy for you and all our users to make more sustainable choices. As part of P&G's 2040 Net Zero commitment, Gillette is working on a plan — from the materials we source to the way we ship our products. We've also set interim targets for 2030 to make meaningful progress when it's needed: now. To reach our goals, we will need to leverage both existing solutions and seek out transformative new ones. This will require invention, creativity, and partnership, with more work to come as we progress on this journey.
① ACCELERATE THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY
With every new product, we are finding ways to make Gillette's production more sustainable, and Gillette's products more durable.
② REDUCE EMMISSIONS AND WASTED RESOURCES
**in Gillette owned manufacturing sites globally, electricity purchased via renewable certificates. Other sources of electricity are also used in some manufacturing centres and contract manufacturers
76% EMISSIONS REDUCTION*
We have reduced our energy use across our plants over the last twelve years by more than 359,000 GJs (Gigajoule), enough energy to power more than 16 million homes for 1 year. We've also reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 76%* in the same period; that is equivalent to more than 65,000MT (Metric Tonnes).
100% RENEWABLE PURCHASED ELECTRICITY
And that's just the start. We are committed to keep reducing our emissions at least 50% by 2030 through the adoption of 100% renewable purchased electricity, and further electrifying our business.
Reducing water consumption
We plan to achieve a 35% reduction in water consumption used at our Gillette plants over the next decade, while also helping you do the same at home. Find out more.
Designing better products
We design our products with open blade architecture, so they don't need much water to clean. Innovative approaches like this help you save on water use at home.
We currently send zero manufacturing waste to landfill from our plants* and plan to sustain this important effort.
