CINCINNATI — Procter & Gamble is working toward making its sites LEED-certified as part of the company's long-term sustainability commitment.
Established by the U.S. Green Building Council, LEED is the nation's preeminent program for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings. All new P&G sites, including those in the United States, that currently are in the design phase or early construction are working toward achieving LEED certification, P&G said.
"Pursuing LEED certification for all new sites, including offices, innovation centers and our manufacturing and distribution centers, is the next evolution in our facility eco-design process that will ensure excellence in sustainable design," said Keith Harrison, P&G global product supply officer. "Having all of our new sites LEED-certified will help us make progress toward our long-term sustainability vision, which includes powering our plants with 100%-renewable energy and zero manufacturing waste to landfill."
