Committed to Good Growth
We believe our short- and long-term success lies in our focus on one thing: good growth. It’s growth that’s profitable, consistent and achieved in a responsible way.
That’s why Clorox’s 2020 Strategy — our long-term strategic plan that guides our business — includes financial goals as well as corporate responsibility goals, addressing environmental sustainability in our operations and products, diversity and inclusion, workplace safety, responsible sourcing and philanthropy, among other key areas of our business.
It’s about achieving success the right way: responsibly and guided by our values. We’re proud of our efforts to support the well-being of our employees; manufacture safe, high-quality products that deliver value to our consumers; serve as strong partners for our retail customers; and strengthen our communities.
Assurance of Corporate Responsibility Metrics
We believe voluntary assurance of our nonfinancial information – more often referred to as our corporate responsibility metrics – reinforces the reliability of our data while strengthening our reporting processes and systems.
In our annual integrated report, we present our corporate responsibility metrics that have gone through the annual assurance review by Ernst & Young, LLP: greenhouse gas emissions, water use, energy consumption, product sustainability improvements, workforce demographics, recordable incident rate, employee engagement and U.S. product donations.
We selected these metrics based on a 2012 Clorox materiality assessment of environmental, operational, people and product matters as well as external benchmarking, a review of the Global Reporting Initiative indicators and the International Integrated Reporting Council principles. A cross-functional team and members of the Clorox Executive Committee reviewed and approved the selection of these metrics for assurance review.
