Colgate's Factories Here And Overseas Reflect Sustainability Commitment

May 30, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
As part of its Sustainability Strategy, Colgate has built a factory in Ho Chi Minh city (Vietnam) that is certified under the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. According to USGBC, the new factory, which makes toothbrushes, will help Vietnam move toward a more sustainable future. The company recently opened a LEED-certified plant in India that manufactures oral care products. Colgate has 10 LEED-certified facilities in the U.S. and abroad, with 11 more underway whose goal is to reduce use of natural resources and curb harmful greenhouse gas emissions. The program calls for eventually reducing deforestation to zero and promoting use of renewable energy.
