Supply & Demand Chain Executive is reporting about how added investments in recycling and beneficial reuse are said to eliminate all manufacturing waste from Procter & Gamble’s global network of more than 100 production sites by 2020. Apparently, 56 % of P&G’s global production sites currently qualify as zero manufacturing waste to landfill. P&G recently announced that plans are now in place to complete the remaining facilities over the next four years.
“We are accelerating progress toward our long term vision and pushing ourselves to do more – with less waste,” said Shailesh Jejurikar, executive sponsor for sustainability and President of Global Fabric Care. “Since 2010, we’ve been working toward a vision of sending zero manufacturing and consumer waste to landfills. This announcement marks another step on that journey.”
