P&G has issued a TCFD aligned report and has responded to CDP’s Climate Survey. Those reports, GHG Emissions Data, and progress vs. goals can be accessed via the following links:

scope 1 & 2 GHG Emissions

P&G publishes our Scope 1 & 2 emissions annually. The chart below summarizes emissions from FY 19/20:

1 Baby, Feminine and Family Care includes Baby Care, Feminine Care and Family Care. Beauty Care includes Hair Care and Skin & Personal Care. Fabric and Home Care includes Fabric Care, Home Care and Chemicals. Grooming includes Blades and Razors and Devices. Health Care includes Personal Health Care and Oral Care. Other includes major stand-alone offices/technical centers that support the business units and our largest distribution facilities. Numbers do not include production from contract manufacturing operations.
2 Total GHG emissions = Scope 1 + Scope 2. Scope 2 emissions calculated using a market-based method.
3 Market-based Scope 2 GHG emissions. Note: Location-based Scope 2 emissions 2020 were 2,566,617 metric tons.

Scope 3 GHG Emissions

Almost all of our Scope 3 emissions come from just four categories — purchased goods and services, upstream and downstream transportation and distribution, use of sold product, and end of life treatment of sold product. Of these, the “use phase” of our products, especially those that use hot water during consumer use, is our single greatest opportunity for Scope 3 emissions. Given these four categories account for more than 99% of Scope 3 emissions, we focused this year’s data update on those categories and derived new estimates for them using life cycle assessment (LCA) data and calendar year 2019 production volumes. Findings were consistent with prior years, indicating consumer use of our products remains our greatest opportunity area. The business travel estimate includes commercial airline travel by employees that was managed by our primary outside travel agencies. Travel arranged by other agencies was not covered in the calculation.
