DJ PG Pledges Carbon Neutral Operations Through Next Decade

By Dieter Holger

Procter & Gamble Co. on Thursday said it would invest in nature conservancy projects to offset its emissions with the aim of operating as a carbon neutral company throughout the next decade.

The Cincinnati, Ohio-based home goods giant said it would fund a portfolio of ecology plans through a partnership with the nonprofits Conservation International and the World Wildlife Fund.

P&G said it had already identified at least three projects, including restoring trees that California's wildfires destroyed and protecting mangroves in the Philippines's Palawan archipelago.

The move adds to P&G's previous pledge to cut half of its greenhouse gas emissions and purchase 100% renewable electricity by 2030.

"By reducing our carbon footprint and investing in natural climate solutions, we will be carbon neutral for the decade across our operations and help protect vulnerable ecosystems and communities around the world," David Taylor, chairman, president and chief executive of P&G, said in prepared remarks.

迪特尔·霍尔格(Dieter Holger)著

宝洁公司(Procter&Gamble Co.)周四表示,将投资于自然保护项目,以抵消其排放,目标是在未来十年内作为一家碳中性公司运营。

这家总部位于俄亥俄州辛辛那提的家居用品巨头表示,它将通过与非营利组织国际保护组织(Protection International)和世界野生动物基金会(World Wildlife Fund)的合作伙伴关系,为一系列生态计划提供资金。

宝洁表示,它已经确定了至少三个项目,包括恢复被加州野火烧毁的树木,以及保护菲律宾巴拉望群岛的红树林。

此举增加了宝洁之前的承诺,即到2030年将温室气体排放量减少一半,并购买100%的可再生电力。

宝洁董事长、总裁兼首席执行官戴维·泰勒(David Taylor)在事先准备好的讲话中表示:“通过减少我们的碳足迹,并投资于自然气候解决方案,我们将在整个业务的十年内保持碳中性,并帮助保护世界各地脆弱的生态系统和社区。”
