Sustainability at Colgate

Achieving economic, social and environmental performance in today’s business climate requires a longterm corporate social responsibility and sustainability strategy that is executed with discipline year after year. At Colgate, we bring to our 2015 to 2020 Sustainability Strategy the same dedication we bring to our business building efforts, and a strong focus on delivering our five global commitments and goals:

  • Helping Colgate People and Their Families Live Better
  • Contributing to the Communities Where We Live and Work
  • Brands That Delight Consumers and Sustain Our World
  • Making Every Drop of Water Count
  • Reducing Our Impact on Climate and the Environment

We are also especially pleased to highlight these aspects of our ongoing sustainability journey:

  • 2016 marked the 25th Anniversary of our Bright Smiles, Bright Futures program (BSBF), through which Colgate has reached over 900 million children in need around the world with oral health education.
  • Colgate no longer uses microbeads or phthalates as ingredients in our products. We have also reformulated our products using alternative, safe preservative systems and no longer use parabens as preservatives in our products. In 2017, we will also complete the elimination of the use of formaldehyde donors as preservatives in our products.
  • In 2016, we joined members of the Consumer Goods Forum in a commitment to eradicate forced labour from our value chains. We believe that every worker should have freedom of movement, no worker should pay for a job and no worker should be indebted or coerced to work, principles long established in our own direct operations.
  • We issued a commodity-specific Policy on Responsible and Sustainable Sourcing of Palm Oils and are continuing to work with our suppliers and The Forest Trust to build a traceable supply chain that meets our policy criteria.
  • We have also recently confirmed our support for the UN Global Compact and principles on human rights, labour, environmental and anticorruption.
