Colgate-Palmolive Updates Progress To 2025 Goals

Colgate-Palmolive achieved measurable steps toward its 2025 Sustainability & Social Impact Strategy, executing across 11 actions and more than 50 targets for building a more sustainable future.

The company’s top achievements include setting targets to reduce Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions by 20% by 2025, by 42% by 2030, and to reach net zero carbon emissions across the value chain by 2040. Colgate plans to use 100% renewable electricity for our global operations by 2030. 

The company also announced that 26 Colgate plants across five continents have been certified as Total Resource Use and Efficiency (TRUE®) Zero Waste compliant as of December 31, 2021, with six new certifications added in 2021 alone.

Colgate recently published its first report aligned with recommendations from the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), highlighting the company’s strategy to address the risks and opportunities related to climate change.

“At Colgate, we firmly believe that Sustainability & Social Impact go hand in hand. I am proud that our strategy prioritizes both sustainability and social impact initiatives so that we can empower communities across the globe to have brighter, healthier futures,” said Ann Tracy, Chief Sustainability Officer, Colgate-Palmolive, in a statement. “By striving to make progress across our three key ambitions – Driving Social Impact, Helping Millions of Homes, and Preserving Our Environment – we can make a positive impact on all people, their pets and our planet.”
