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.
Reduce, Recycle, Reuse Waste
We're working hard to minimize the waste from our operations, and we have a long-term goal to become zero waste-to-landfill. By 2020, we've set a goal to have 10 zero-waste-to-landfill sites (90 percent of waste is either recycled or composted with the rest of waste sent to a waste-to-energy facility). Three facilities have already achieved this zero-waste-to-landfill designation and are working to further reduce what is sent to waste-to-energy facilities. We're working hard to install robust recycling programs at all of our facilities, including our offices in Oakland and California, where we already divert more than 80 percent of waste from landfill.
Reducing Hazardous Waste
Eliminating hazardous waste is good for the environment, and Clorox employs manufacturing practices that improve the efficiency of our processes and minimize the need for hazardous waste. Any waste that is generated is handled by approved vendors and properly tracked throughout the process.
