As a company that strives to be the best truly global consumer products company, Colgate-Palmolive is committed to doing business with integrity and respect for all people and for the world around us. Colgate's long-term sustainability strategy is focused on three areas: People, Performance and Planet. Colgate’s planet-related commitments cover its energy use, carbon emissions, water use and waste generation. The company's 2015 goals include the reduction of energy and carbon intensities by 20 percent each. Colgate-Palmolive also recently announced a commitment to reduce carbon emissions on an absolute basis by 25% by 2020 compared to 2002, with a longer term goal of a 50% absolute reduction by 2050 compared to 2002. The company continues to drive its carbon goal by primarily focusing on energy reduction and efficiency, supplemented by the employment of alternative energy and renewable energy technologies such as solar, green power and cogeneration.
