Colgate-Palmolive has announced that all plastics in its packaging across its product range will be 100% recyclable by 2025. 

The company has said that it has already made progress on advancing its sustainability goals, and currently 98% of its packaging is PVC-free.  

Last year, Colgate released its 2017 Sustainability Report, which outlined its long-standing commitments.

The report highlighted that the company is: 

  • Remaining committed to reaching its goal of using 100% sustainable palm oil 
  • Dedicating time to support the UN Global Compact Sustainable Development Goals 
  • Achieving and surpassing its 2020 science-based climate goal of reducing absolute greenhouse gas emissions from manufacturing by 25%.  

Colgate chairman, president and chief executive Ian Cook said: “With the help of Colgate People and our suppliers and partners, we are making good progress against our 2020 goals.  

“But our sustainability journey is on-going and as we achieve some of our goals, we are assessing new areas for focus and new targets to strive for so that we can continue building a future to smile about.”
