7th October 2013

Colgate-Palmolive has been included in the 2013-2014 Dow Jones Sustainability World and North America Indices, as well as the latest Climate Disclosure Leadership Index from CDP.

This is indicative of the company's success in continually intensifying its sustainability initiatives and outperforming its peers in accordance with various key metrics, as well as its strong approach to the disclosure of information regarding climate change.

It has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices for five consecutive years and remains committed to a global sustainability strategy, with focused, measurable goals in various areas.

For example, the firm aims to reduce the energy consumption and carbon emissions per unit of production by 20 percent by 2015, a target it is on track to achieve.

The company said: "Colgate recognises the responsibility businesses have concerning the global issue of climate change and is dedicated to continuously improving greenhouse gas governance and performance around this challenge."
