Protecting the environment
The first step in protecting the environment is understanding it. P&G' s environmental safety organization helps to develop that understanding and to ensure that our products and ingredients do not harm the environment.
As our knowledge about the environment increases, the ways we protect it improve. Much of this effort is dedicated to understanding the toxicity and biodegradability of our products' ingredients. Biodegradability refers to where an ingredient goes in the environment and how much of it gets there.
This section covers in detail the different science fields and expertise we have built inside P&G after years and years of research.
