Colgate-Palmolive earns sustainability award from US Green Building Council

2nd December 2015

Colgate-Palmolive has been presented with the 2015 Ray Anderson Radical Industrialism Award for sustainability by the US Green Building Council.

The company received the accolade at the 2015 Greenbuild Conference in recognition of its commitment to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification in the design of its facilities.

Colgate-Palmolive currently has 11 certified facilities and eight more in the pipeline, generating significant savings in energy and water, as well as reducing its waste and carbon emissions on a company-wide basis.

Rick Fedrizzi, chief executive officer and founding chair of the US Green Building Council, said: "At the company's heart is a culture of care for the planet, and the awareness-building and education it does around water conservation says a great deal about its end-to-end commitment to leadership."

The company's commitment to sustainable building and facilities management forms part of its wider Reducing Our Impact on Climate and the Environment strategy and goals for 2020.

It is also working to responsibly source forest commodities to reach zero net deforestation, reduce its absolute greenhouse gas emissions from manufacturing by 25 percent and cut its manufacturing energy intensity by one-third compared to its 2002 performance.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801807261-ADNFCR
