Embracing Environmental Transparency by Disclosing Through CDP
This week, Edgewell Personal Care is proud to have received a B score for our 2022 Climate Change impact report from CDP, a global non-profit that runs the world’s leading environmental disclosure platform. This score demonstrates our commitment to continuous improvement and transparency, and reflects our company’s ongoing efforts to operate responsibly and sustainably, all while producing innovative and high-quality products for our customers and consumers.
Our sustainability mission at Edgewell is to create products that people love to use to take care of themselves, with careful consideration of our planet and everyone who shares it. Our Sustainable Care 2030 strategy provides a roadmap for delivering on our ambitions and guides us to ensure that we are a successful and responsible business not just today, but for generations to come.
Part of executing on this strategy is our focus on reducing our environmental footprint. More specifically, in our disclosure to the CDP this year – and following the advice of leading climate science to align to a 1.5°C pathway – we’ve shared our commitment to reduce our absolute greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 50% by 2030 compared to 2019 levels, which is more aggressive than our previously stated goal to reduce GHG emissions by 10% compared to 2019 levels. Edgewell's ambition is to go beyond this goal, to achieve carbon neutrality across our global operations for Scopes 1 and 2.
We are proud to join over 20,000 businesses around the world who also disclose data to CDP and believe that through measurement we can drive better performance. We recognize the importance of being transparent with our stakeholders and remain committed to taking action on climate change.
