P&G Joins Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Circular Economy 100

Procter & Gamble, along with three other brands, are the latest organisations to join the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Circular Economy 100 (CE100).

The Circular Economy 100 is a pre-competitive innovation programme established to enable organisations to develop new opportunities and realise their circular economy ambitions faster.

It brings together corporates, governments and cities, academic institutions, emerging innovators and affiliates in a unique multi-stakeholder platform. Specially developed programme elements help members learn, build capacity, network, and collaborate with key organisations around the circular economy.

Other CE100 corporate members include Coca Cola, Google, H&M and Unilever.

Procter & Gamble is a multi-national consumer goods corporation which specialises in cleaning agents, personal care and hygiene products, and has operations in approximately 70 countries worldwide.

The company has been working to incorporate circularity into their supply chain for many years, and indeed, P&G’s focus on waste has allowed their global facilities to successfully divert over 5 million tonnes of would be waste from landfills since 2008.

They have recently announced their Ambition 2030 for the decade ahead which includes commitments to reduce their supply chain footprint and striving to drive circular solutions. Two specific targets include 100% renewable electricity and cutting GHG emissions in half at P&G sites.

P&G recently announced their Ambition 2030 commitments for the decade ahead, which includes a commitment to reduce their supply chain footprint while striving to drive circular solutions.

P&G has established specific targets that they intend to achieve by 2030:

  1. 100% renewable electricity and cut GHG emissions in half at P&G sites
  2. P&G sites will deliver a 35% increase in water efficiency and source at least 5 billion liters of water from circular sources
  3. Advance at least 10 significant supply chain partnerships to drive circularity on climate, water or waste

P&G has been working to incorporate circularity into its supply chain for many years, it says. One of its most successful examples to date is its commitment to have 100% of its production facilities send zero manufacturing waste to landfill by 2020. Currently over 85% of our sites, including 100% of the manufacturing sites in 26 countries, are now qualified through aggressive waste reduction, recycling, and beneficial re-use programs.

Its focus on waste has allowed its global facilities to successfully divert over 5 million tonnes of would be waste from landfills since the program began in 2008, it says. In addition to waste, P&G is actively working on advanced water filtration/recycling and renewable energy projects both onsite and offsite.

The other recent CE100 sign-ups include Lucart, Du Pont Biomaterialsand MUD Jeans.
