Environmental stewardship is a business imperative. Environmental sustainability is embedded in our corporate strategy and the way we work. We are committed to doing our part to conserve and protect our planet now and for future generations.
Our Commitment to Environmental Sustainability
The Clorox Company believes that rising GHG emissions have a significant impact on climate change and the environment. Clorox therefore supports Congressional action on comprehensive national climate change legislation aimed at reducing aggregate emissions of greenhouse gas over time without causing undue hardships for the U.S. economy.
Clorox is also committed to doing its part to help address this issue. We report our greenhouse gas emissions, have set a public GHG reduction goal, and are actively working to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of our global manufacturing and distribution operations.
We have also committed to making our product portfolio more sustainable by reducing and improving the sustainability of materials used in our products and packages. To do this, Clorox views each of our businesses, at each stage of their product life cycle, through an environmental sustainability lens in order to gain a deeper understanding of their GHG and overall environmental impact and to identify opportunities to reduce this impact.
We also seek to embed GHG and general environmental considerations into our major corporate decision and planning processes, starting with product and packaging design and development.
Clorox's Board of Directors' Nominating and Governance Committee is responsible for oversight of environmental health and safety compliance at the company, including climate change. Additionally, GHG reduction is a part of Clorox's 2007–2013 corporate strategy and therefore the responsibility of senior leadership — the Clorox Executive Committee — who oversees corporate strategy execution.
Clorox also has an explicit, articulated Environmental Sustainability Strategy and dedicated corporate-level Eco Office led by a Vice President of Environmental Sustainability that is charged with executing that strategy. This further ensures that Clorox will be able to drive GHG reductions and sustainability improvement throughout the organization and over time.
