IoPP Premium Webinar

Colgate-Palmolive’s Sustainability Strategy—and Packaging’s Role

Thursday, December 8, 2022
11 AM - 12 PM EST


Colgate-Palmolive has emerged as a socially responsible corporate leader, intending to achieve net zero carbon by 2040 and 100% renewable electricity for its global operations by 2030.

In this webinar, Colgate-Palmolive details its commitment to building environmental and social consciousness into its packaging decision-making.

Colgate-Palmolive's Global Toothbrush Packaging Manager, Sukhdev Saini, will discuss the company's sustainability initiatives and the key pillars of its strategic model.

He'll also talk about Colgate-Palmolive's Keep Toothbrush, a 2022 AmeriStar winner in the sustainability category. This manual toothbrush is the brand's first to include a handle made with aluminum instead of plastic—eliminating 80% of the plastic waste from a typical toothbrush. And Keep's 100% paper-based package allows for recycling in a single waste stream.

Saini will discuss how the Colgate-Palmolive team brought the package to life, including insight into the concept, design, supplier selection and sourcing, testing, and more.
