P&G is Stepping Forward to Lead with Love to Resume Learning Everywhere, Protect the Planet and Equity for All
We’re teaming up with Global Citizen to call for international solidarity and renewed commitments for a fairer, more equal future for everyone. It’s called the World Recovery Plan, and we’re supporting these efforts because at P&G, our goal is to Lead With Love in every community we touch.
Right now the world is facing serious challenges that impact all of us. We’re stepping forward to Lead with Love through our company and brand acts of good supporting key aspects of the World Recovery Plan:
P&G Oral Care Brands aspire to enable all Americans to have a healthy smile
CINCINNATI, February 10, 2021 /3BL Media/ – A healthy smile expresses who a person is and how they feel, but something as simple as a smile can sometimes be taken for granted. Tooth decay is the No. 1 chronic disease in America, with children in underserved communities disproportionately impacted. Black and Hispanic children experience a higher rate of tooth decay, but are less likely to see a dentist. As champions for unleashing healthy smiles, Crest and Oral-B commit to advancing oral care habits to ensure all Americans have a smile they are happy to share with the world.
We aspire to build a better world for all of us — inside and outside of P&G. A world free from gender bias, with equal voice and equal representation for all individuals. A world where everyone sees equal. When we do this, economies grow, communities are healthier, businesses can thrive, and the world is a better place for everyone.
In 2010, P&G declared a set of goals and commitments to reduce our environmental footprint across climate, water and waste. Since then our business has continued to grow, while our teams have developed smarter, more efficient ways to operate. As we close out 2020, we are proud to report that 14 out of 16 goals we set back in 2010 have been achieved.
Competition brings out the best in us. It pushes us further, drives us harder and makes us stronger. We celebrate it and revel in it. But there is one place where it does not bring out our best — beauty. It is the one competition that no one signed up for, but still many feel the pressure of competing beauty standards, rules and limitations. These toxic competitions dictate how we should look, feel and act, which can hold us back in our daily lives.
For years, we have used our voice as a leading advertiser to shine a light on inequality, highlight bias and spark dialogue that leads to understanding and action with award-winning short films like “The Talk” and “The Look.” We’ve also brought companies together for collective action under the “Take On Race” coalition.
At P&G, we’ve supported communities and consumers through unexpected challenges for more than 180 years – and stepped up to provide significant support for COVID-19 relief, equality and the environment in 2020. Today, we’re announcing a commitment to 2,021 acts of good for 2021, starting with our next major wave of contributions of health, hygiene and cleaning products, personal protective equipment (PPE), and financial support collectively worth tens of millions of dollars for COVID-19 relief efforts.
Today, we released our 2020 Citizenship Report, detailing progress across our Citizenship focus areas of Community Impact, Equality & Inclusion and Environmental Sustainability – all built on a foundation of Ethics and Corporate Responsibility.
