The Clorox Company, a manufacturer and marketer of consumer and professional products, has pledged to reduce emissions on its path to achieving net zero emissions by 2050.
It has set science-based targets, which includes cutting carbon emissions across its operations by 50% by 2030 and value chain emissions from its purchased goods and services and use of sold products by 25% during the same period, against a 2020 baseline.
The company has committed to maintain its use of 100% renewable electricity for operations in the US and Canada, which was initially achieved in January 2021.
In addition, it will incorporate climate considerations into purchased goods and services, reduce virgin material and increase the use of post-consumer recycled content in packaging as well as innovate to reduce the carbon footprint of products.
Linda Rendle, CEO of The Clorox Company said: “As a health and wellness company at heart, we recognise that the long term well-being of future generations depends on the health of our planet.
“Taking decisive climate action is essential to protecting our planet and communities and demonstrates our commitment to our purpose – to champion people to be well and thrive. We have strong aspirations for decarbonising our business as we accelerate our growth agenda for long term value creation for all stakeholders.”
