Our sustainability commitments help ensure we remain a caring and innovative company reimagining a healthier future for people and our planet.
Our products are made at Colgate-Palmolive facilities that are increasing energy and water efficiency, driving towards zero waste, and adhering to ethical labour practices at every location in the world in which we operate.
We’re committed to meeting all applicable environmental rules and regulations – and often exceed these standards – in how we make and market our products and operate our facilities.
Strict standards define environmental performance at Palmolive; all our facilities have a fully implemented Environmental Management System covering a wide range of categories, including energy efficiency, climate, water stewardship, and waste management.
Through our ‘5% for the Planet’ program, Colgate-Palmolive aims to allocate 5% of every manufacturing facility’s annual capital budget towards projects that reduce energy, water and waste.

Keeping our hands clean is a key step in staying healthy, according to the Department of Health “Hand hygiene is crucial in reducing transmission of infections”. Hand washing isn’t just good hygiene to help stop you getting sick, it’s a skill, one that you use every single day. Studies show that routines and habits are unlikely to vary after the age of 9, so it’s never too young to teach kids to be hand washing champions!
Over the last decade, Palmolive has supported parents and teachers in K-6 with the Clean Hands Good Health education program. The program provides education kits and online activities to engage young kids and develop good hygiene routines and habits.
