6 Colgate s Sustainability Journey Colgate-Palmolive Company ( Colgate ) has long focused on the principles of sustainability. We ve always been dedicated to providing quality products that delight consumers, and we ve had programs in place to promote oral health in communities and to reduce our energy use and increase efficiency for years. Colgate s values of Caring, Global Teamwork and Continuous Improvement go handin-hand with the idea of sustaining both our business and the planet for generations to come. In 2008, we organized our sustainability efforts under the three pillars of People, Performance and Planet. A global Sustainability Council and a network of Sustainability Sponsors and Champions worked with others to implement the goals under each pillar. Australian Packaging Covenant Action Plan Page 6 of 18

7 In 2010, a global team of Sustainability Leaders representing each functional unit at Colgate helped develop a 2011 to 2015 Sustainability Strategy with focused measurable goals that align with our business objectives. Our commitments reflect the global challenges and opportunities that are material to both Colgate and our stakeholders. Colgate s 2011 to 2015 strategy maintains its emphasis on People, Performance and Planet, with focused, measurable goals that align with the Company s business objectives. Global Sustainability Strategy Australian Packaging Covenant Action Plan Page 7 of 18

8 Product Integrity Colgate s internal business integrity extends to the integrity of our products their safety, efficacy, quality and sustainability. We are committed to finding ways to improve the sustainability profile of our product portfolio. We re also committed to bringing products to consumers that meet their needs and expectations, and are continuously working to develop products that have a reduced impact on the planet. Product integrity also includes a commitment to providing affordable products to consumers at lower income levels, and linking our products to bettering communities, through programs such as our Bright Smiles, Bright Futures oral health education initiative and our global hand washing education programs. Improving Sustainability As part of our 2011 to 2015 Sustainability Strategy, we ve committed to increase the sustainability profile in all new products we produce and in the balance of our portfolio. 1 We have also committed to reduce the environmental impact of our products and packages by 20 percent, by increasing the use of sustainable materials and recycled content. In 2012, Colgate began evaluating new products using a Product Sustainability Scorecard to drive improvement across the product life cycle. The scorecard rates products with 35 parameters across eight focus areas: responsible sourcing, materials, energy and greenhouse gases, waste, water, ingredient profile, packaging and social impact. So far, we have improved the sustainability profile in 24 percent of our products. 2 1 A 10% or better improvement in at least one of the following: Ingredient Profile, Responsible Sourcing, Packaging, Waste, Water, Energy and Greenhouse Gases. 2 Results are based on a sample of representative new and existing products Australian Packaging Covenant Action Plan Page 8 of 18

9 Focus on Packaging Colgate s goal by 2015 is to increase the amount of recycled content in our packaging by 5 percent per year, including post-consumer materials, materials from renewable resources and recyclable materials. Additionally, we are committed to responsible package design and are researching and testing bio-plastic options made from renewable resources. Approximately 35 percent of our packaging materials globally are from recycled sources, and we re working to expand the use in all Colgate regions by identifying new technologies and sources of supply. Reducing Energy Use and Greenhouse Gas Emissions We believe businesses have a vital role to play in the global issue of climate change, and we re committed to continuously improving our greenhouse gas governance and performance around this challenge. Our 2015 goal is to reduce the energy consumption and carbon emissions per unit of production associated with the manufacture 1 and distribution 2 of our products by 20 percent. We are on track for this reduction, with a 15 percent reduction in energy, and a 14 percent reduction in carbon emissions per unit of production in 2012 vs vs vs.2008 for Europe and Hill s delivery; 2010 for U.S., Hill s Replenishment; 2011 for Greater Asia; 2013 for South Pacific and Africa. 3 Subject to certification by third-party auditor. Australian Packaging Covenant Action Plan Page 9 of 18

10 Moving Products to Consumers In 2012, Colgate undertook an aggressive initiative to increase the reporting and analysis of CO 2 associated with the distribution of our products (logistics). We now calculate the carbon impact for over 80 percent of our global production volume. In both the U.S. and Europe, we have reduced our logistics CO 2 emissions by over 20 percent per ton of finished goods moved. We re also working to increase the amount of intermodal transportation in which goods are shipped in an intermodal container or vehicle that can move through different modes of transportation, such as by sea and rail. When compared with using trucks and aircraft, intermodal transportation reduces greenhouse gas emissions and saves cost. Reducing Waste Colgate s 2011 to 2015 goal is to reduce waste sent to landfills per unit of production from our operations by 15 percent. So far, we ve reduced waste by 10 percent in the past two years. Our sites have been working on this initiative for many years, but in 2012 Colgate formalized our approach to driving reduction. We are piloting a simplification program aimed at reducing the number and complexity associated with our waste vendors, bringing both cost reductions and improved alternatives to landfill disposal. We are also developing standardized Waste Scorecards to help increase the visibility and understanding of our waste reduction opportunities. Australian Packaging Covenant Action Plan Page 10 of 18

11 Supplier Responsible Sourcing Assessments Managing responsibility across the supply chain for all of our suppliers and products is a complex process. In 2012, we launched a number of new programs and tools to help increase certainty that our suppliers are operating responsibly. Colgate s Supplier Responsible Sourcing Assessment Program is one important new initiative. We use an industry-standard self-assessment questionnaire focused on labour practices, health and safety, environmental management and business practices to assess suppliers. When suppliers are assessed as high risk, we perform third party audits of their facilities. Engaging Suppliers on Climate and the Environment In addition to our efforts to decrease greenhouse gas emissions associated with our own operations, we have also participated in Carbon Disclosure Project s Supply Chain Leadership Collaboration Project since its inception in 2008, increasing the scope of suppliers each year. By working with this program, Colgate gathers data to obtain a better understanding of our overall environmental footprint. In 2012, 85 percent of our largest suppliers (based on total direct material spend) reported through the CDP Supply Chain survey. Over 40 percent of our suppliers responding through the CDP Supply Chain survey have set an energy reduction target. We also have a continuous improvement program involving suppliers around the world called Supplier Enhancement Program. With this program, we review continuous improvement opportunities that help suppliers improve their overall competitiveness. Australian Packaging Covenant Action Plan Page 11 of 18

12 Responsible Sourcing of Forest Commodities Many consumer products contain ingredients or packaging that can be labelled as forest commodities because they come from trees as in paper and packaging or from agricultural cultivation on land that has been deforested. Deforestation leads to biodiversity loss and accounts for approximately 15 percent of the world s greenhouse gas emissions, the equivalent of the entire transportation sector. According to CDP, the main driver of deforestation globally is land use change for agriculture. Colgate has strategies to govern the responsible sourcing of these forest commodities, and we are seeking opportunities for continual improvement. We responded to the Forest Footprint Disclosure for the first time in 2012, and will do so again as part of CDP Forests in Paper and Board Much of Colgate s packaging material is derived from wood-derived or paper-based products. Colgate strives to purchase paper packaging from well-managed forests or from recycled material when available. We understand the priority of purchasing certified wood-derived products in order to prevent illegal logging, deforestation and conversion of old-growth forests to monoculture plantations. Our procurement teams are now asking companies that sell paper products a series of sustainability questions. In 2011, we undertook an internal mapping to understand how much of our purchases come from suppliers that had been certified by reputable organizations: approximately 70 percent of our spend came from suppliers certified by groups such as the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), the Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC) and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI). Australian Packaging Covenant Action Plan Page 12 of 18

13 We also have a goal to increase the recycled content in our packaging by 20 percent by 2015, and thus avoid the use of new paper and board. Today, approximately 35 percent of our packaging materials globally come from recycled sources (includes both paper and other recycled materials). Company APC Historical Timetable Colgate-Palmolive (Australia) has been submitting Action Plans and Performance Reports on an annual basis over the life of the National Packaging Covenant MKI & II.
