P&G sets ambitious sustainability goals for Thai manufacturing base

Procter & Gamble has set ambitious sustainability goals for its Thai manufacturing base, according to a report published by The Nation, that will see the plant recycle 100 percent of energy, use renewable resources for 100 percent of packaging and production and produce zero waste in the future.

The new long-term goals go beyond its 2020 target to reduce waste by 20 percent as well as its current drive to pare back energy and water use by 37 and 36 percent respectively. What’s more, the plant will apply biomass technology in the near future to increase manufacturing efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

“We not only dedicate ourselves to research and development of environmentally-friendly products and manufacturing processes but P&G worldwide, including Thailand, also organises the Earth Week Campaign under the theme You Can Make a World of Difference, to raise awareness of and take part in environmental conservation among our staff, not only on Earth Day, but everyday,” Kannika Jarusuraisin, External Relations Director for P&G Trading (Thailand), told The Nation.
