“P&G Professional’s science-based commitment to sustainability is a direct reflection of P&G’s longstanding corporate approach to environmental responsibility, product innovation and safety,” said Eric Hetrick, director, P&G Professional North America. “We are proud of this recognition by Newsweek and will continue to work tirelessly with our counterparts throughout the P&G organization to bring environmentally-sound, sustainable products to distributors, customers and the business community.”
The Newsweek report is the result of a comprehensive research project completed in collaboration with three partners: KLD, Trucost and Corporate Register. Each company included in the ranking was judged on a variety of criteria, including carbon footprint, energy efficiency and use of other natural resources. P&G received high marks throughout the report, including placing fourth within the consumer products sector. More information on the rankings can be found at http://greenrankings.newsweek.com.
In 2009, P&G also was recognized by Financial Times and JustMeans with “The 2008/2009 Social Innovation Award” for its work in shaping the new world of sustainable and socially responsible enterprise. P&G also was ranked 14th in Corporate Responsibility Officer magazine’s 10th annual “100 Best Corporate Citizens List®,” which rates companies according to their environmental, climate change, human rights, philanthropic, employee relations, financial and governance practices.
