We draw on our collective energy to meet our ambitions of purpose-led brands, a healthier planet and a fairer society.
For every new product that RB launches, our ambition is that it is more sustainable compared similar existing ones. This supports a progressive reduction in our environmental footprint across our broad product portfolio, helping to progressively delivery our science based targets to combat climate change and deliver on the Paris Agreement by 2030. Our product innovation complements targets to reduce in carbon emissions in manufacturing and supply chains. Our brands are purpose-led and their programmes contribute to deliver the sustainable development goals, with both environmental and social impacts. These are embodied in our sustainability ambitions, more details of which can be found at https://www.reckitt.com/sustainability/our-approach
We continue to make progress and aim to strengthen how we design our products to support a healthier planet, recognising the connection that has with the health of all of us.
We are focussed on circularity and design our products with that in mind. We see renewable carbon as key to progress on circularity. With our suppliers, we are identifying opportunities for renewable carbon. Many of these technologies are in different stages of development and commercial readiness. They may need to be validated to allow them to contribute in a meaningful and impactful way. We know the transition from fossil-based feedstock is complex and different solutions are required to become carbon neutral. To navigate this transition, we believe we that collaboration connecting suppliers and end-users, can create a framework that supports faster adoption. We look forward to collaborating and contributing in support of circular design as well as learning from others to further strengthen and accelerate our own efforts. We are hopeful that increased collaboration through the RCI, between industry supply-chains and civil society, can enable this system change and unlock the potential of renewable carbon feedstocks.
