P&G Announces new sustainability vision

In its new "sustainability vision," P&G has set a goal, to be achieved by 2020, including:
• Replacing 25 percent of petroleum-derived raw materials with sustainably sourced, renewable materials;
• Reducing packaging by 20 percent per consumer use;
• Powering company operations with 30 percent renewable energy; and
• Reducing waste from manufacturing to less than 0.5 percent
