Setting the Sustainability Standard

Wednesday, September 2 | 3:30 p.m. EDT

Packaging and plastics is top of mind for consumers, companies, the media and especially U.S. lawmakers.

Truly sustainable operations and a minimized environmental footprint require progress on a broad range of factors. The consumer packaged goods (CPG) industry is leading the way, approaching sustainability by integrating new technologies, ideas and top talent as a fundamental business practice.

Industry benchmark lists, like Forbes and CDP, rank the most sustainable companies based on factors like energy, water and supplier transparency. McCormick & Company is often a key player on those lists – ranking number one in food and beverage companies in the 2020 G100 list. Colgate-Palmolive and other CPG brands are making significant progress, setting aggressive goals to make their operations more sustainable over the next five years. Join us to hear from those who are leading the way – Colgate-Palmolive and McCormick & Company will take the ‘screen’ to discuss how their companies view sustainability holistically, how they set high-level environmental and sustainability goals, the path to achieve these goals and how you can start working toward having an influence in your company’s practices now.
