Procter & Gamble
Procter & Gamble is an American consumer goods giant specializing in a wide range of personal care and hygiene products. P&G was founded in 1837 by brothers-in-law William Procter, a candlemaker, and James Gamble, a soapmaker. Today the company manufactures well-known household products, including Crest, Charmin, Tide, Oral-B, Bounty, Febreze, Downy, and Gain. In 2014, P&G dropped around 100 of its brands to make a concentrated effort on the remaining 65, which produced 95% of the company’s profits. In 2020, P&G announced plans for its operations to be climate neutral by 2030, extending a previous goal to reduce emissions by half over the next 10 years.
