P&G Releases Their 2020 Citizenship Report
December 10, 2020 at 08:05 AM EST
Today, we released our 2020 Citizenship Report, detailing progress across our Citizenship focus areas of Community Impact, Equality & Inclusion and Environmental Sustainability – all built on a foundation of Ethics and Corporate Responsibility.
The past year brought many challenges but we stepped up – from donating tens of million in product, in-kind and cash donations to help with COVID-19 relief efforts to addressing racial inequality in the U.S. with our Take on Race initiative, to achieving important environmental goals like sending zero manufacturing waste to landfill across all P&G manufacturing sites globally.
“The past year is proof that Citizenship cannot be something done on the side; it has to be built into how we do business every day. Not only does it build trust and equity with consumers and the broader set of stakeholders we serve, when done with the right intentions and with meaningful actions, it drives growth and value creation, which allows us to be a force for good and a force for growth in our world that needs us all to work together,” said David Taylor, P&G’s Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer.
Our contributions have been recognized externally with recognitions from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation for Social Responsibility in Action, Forbes as one of the Best Employers for Diversity, Barron’s Most Sustainable Companies and Fortune’s World’s Most Admired Companies.
The stories of progress in the report demonstrate our commitment to improve lives every day – through our employees and our brands, with our partners and in our communities. Highlights from this year’s report include:
Inside P&G, we instituted a new global parental leave policy to further advance gender-equality by making child caregiving gender unbiased. And, for the first time, we reported progress on our aspiration to achieve gender-equal representation at every level in P&G globally and 40% representation of multicultural employees at every management level in the U.S. We’ve made progress – 48% of our global managers are women and 28% of our U.S. managers are multicultural.
We have issued a report on our efforts to have a positive impact on the world for more than 20 years, beginning with our first Sustainability Report in 1999.
The Executive Summary of our 2020 P&G Citizenship Report, a 24-page overview of the progress and stories, is available online as well as a detailed version of the report.
