Captured in the 2018 Citizenship
released today, P&G highlights the recent activities that
define the Company as a force for good and a force for growth.

"Our aspiration is clear. We want to be a force for good and force for
growth. We know that the more we integrate and build Citizenship into
how we do business, the bigger the impact we can make with the people we
serve, the communities where we live and work, and the broader world
that surrounds us. In turn, this helps us grow and build our business,"
said David Taylor, P&G's Chairman of the Board, President and Chief
Executive Officer.

The Company has made progress in all its Citizenship priority areas and
the highlights from the report include:

  • Community Impact: This year, the Company celebrated a milestone
    with its Children's Safe Drinking Water Program, distributing its 14
    billionth liter of clean drinking water to those who need it most.
    P&G's brands played an important role in helping those impacted by
    natural disasters such as the hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria and
    Florence, and our Tide Loads of Hope program washed more than 3,800
    loads of laundry to help bring a sense of normalcy to those suffering
    the effects of natural disasters.
  • Diversity & Inclusion: P&G sparked important conversations
    around equality with two award-winning films: "The Talk" about racial
    bias and "The Words Matter" about LGBT+ inclusion. Its brands launched
    multiple advertising campaigns that include positive portrayals of
    diverse families and individuals. Internally, the Company introduced
    additional benefits to modernize employee parental leave policies as
    part of its Flex@Work program.
  • Gender Equality: As a leader in using its voice to call
    attention to gender equality, P&G created a thought-provoking new
    exhibit, "Women at Work: Myth vs. Reality," which challenges outdated
    thinking about women in the workplace. It also partnered with Sesame
    Workshop and the Muppets to set new expectations about gender for boys
    and girls around the world and introduced a range of new brand
    advertising campaigns championing equal voice and equal representation
    for all individuals.
  • Environmental Sustainability: In April, the Company announced
    ambitious sustainability goals for 2030. Having already achieved many
    of its 2020 goals for climate, water and waste, P&G's Ambition 2030
    framework focuses on where the Company can make the biggest positive
    difference – with its brands, supply chain, society and employees. The
    Company has renewed its focus on plastic waste and many of its brands
    are stepping up to increase the recyclability of packaging and use
    more recycled material.

"For more than 180 years, the Company has been touching and improving
lives. It's who we are. It's what we do. And it motivates us to do more
and be a force for good and a force for growth in the world," said
