Procter & Gamble announces it is plastic waste neutral in India
Procter & Gamble has become ‘plastic waste neutral’ in India over the past 12 months as it has collected, processed, and recycled over 19,000 metric tonnes of post-consumer plastic packaging waste.
The business collected the plastic waste from across the country and announced that it amounts to more than the plastic packaging sold along with its products in the period April 2021 to March 2022, TNN reported. According to P&G, it is working with recycling partners in 75 Indian cities to repurpose the plastic it collects. As well as reducing its plastic use by offsetting it through recycling, P&G has reduced the amount of plastic used in its packaging over the past few years, according to the business.
“We are proud of the significant progress we have made on environmental sustainability, and achieving ‘plastic waste neutrality’ is a key milestone in this journey,” said P&G’s CEO for the Indian Sub-Continent Madhusudan Gopalan, TNN reported.
“Plastic waste does not belong in the environment, and we will continue to partner with multiple stakeholders in our efforts to reduce and recycle packaging waste.”
“We are also taking a deliberate approach to reducing the impact of our operations, and setting up in-house solar plants is a step in this direction,” said Gopalan.
“We have made strong progress across our brands, our supply chain, our operations with support from our partners and employees. We are fully committed to making a positive impact in the world and creating a sustainable future for generations to come.”
