P&G issued its 2018 Citizenship Report, which highlights the Company's progress in its Citizenship priority areas of Community Impact, Diversity & Inclusion, Gender Equality and Environmental Sustainability, all of which are based in a foundation of Ethics and Corporate Responsibility. 

Dear Stakeholders,

We made significant progress in each area of P&G’s Citizenship work in fiscal year 2018, and we continue to actively build Citizenship into how we deliver our business results.

Our aspiration is clear. We want to be a force for good a force for growth. We know that the more we integrate and build Citizenship into how we do business, the bigger the impact we can have on the people we serve, the communities where we live and work and the broader world that surrounds us. In turn, this helps us grow and build our business.

We continue to make a positive impact in each area of Citizenship: Ethics & Corporate Responsibility, Community Impact, Diversity & Inclusion, Gender Equality and Environmental Sustainability. Importantly, our efforts in these areas support nearly every objective outlined in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Here are a few highlights from the last fiscal year:

  • Along with our NGO relief partners, we helped those impacted by disasters around the world. For example, we provided more than 2,000 personal care kits and washed more than 2,300 loads of laundry to help those impacted by hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. We also activated our emergency response efforts to aid victims of the earthquake in Mexico and assisted with Syrian refugees in France, Germany and Turkey. And while this report is on a fiscal year basis, it’s important to note that we’re actively involved in relief efforts for those affected by recent natural disasters in the U.S. and Indonesia.
     
  • Our Children’s Safe Drinking Water Program delivered more than one billion liters of clean drinking water last fiscal year and has provided more than 14 billion liters of water to those who need it most since the program began in 2004.
     
  • We increased representation for women, now at 46% of all P&G managers globally, and we increased our U.S. representation and workplace satisfaction of African Ancestry, Hispanic and Asian Pacific American employees.
     
  • We used our voice in advertising to promote important conversations about a full range of equality, diversity and inclusion topics with the “The Talk,” “Love Over Bias” and “The Words Matter.” We sparked important conversations to motivate positive change along racial, ethnic, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability and gender lines.
     
  • And, we established a new road map to drive sustainability into how we operate to achieve positive impact through our brands, supply chain, society and our employees. This includes making all packaging recyclable or reusable, strengthening trust with our consumers by sharing our safety science across our brands, cutting greenhouse gas emissions from our manufacturing sites in half and continuing to help stem the flow of plastic into the world’s oceans.

This work could not have been accomplished without P&G people who come to work every day ready to make a difference in the lives of people everywhere and the many contributions of our business partners.

For more than 180 years, P&G has been touching and improving lives. It’s who we are. It’s what we do. And it motivates us to do more and be a force for good and a force for growth in the world.
