Procter & Gamble COVID-19 Response
In service to people everywhere who are caring for their families and communities - all day, every day, P&G people are stepping up and serving others as a force for good.
We are bringing trusted brands that help people clean, take care of their personal health and hygiene, and create healthy homes for their families. We are serving communities holistically with our time, talent and technical capability. And we're doing all of this while taking care of ourselves and each other - ensuring we work smartly and safely. In summary, we are stepping up to be there for those who have always been there for us.
In this unprecedented time, everything we do is guided by three core principles:
- Protecting the health and well-being of P&G people;
- Serving consumers around the world who count on our brands and the benefits they provide;
- Supporting communities, relief agencies and people who are on the front lines of this global pandemic.
Taken together, they ensure P&G will be there for the employees, consumers and communities who have always been there for us.
Beyond our brands, we have a long history of supporting communities in times of need - and we are answering the call to do even more. We're stepping up to provide much needed product donations and financial support. Our contributions of product and in-kind support now exceed $15 million and will continue to increase as we work with communities around the world to understand how we can best serve them.
Millions of P&G products are being donated from 30 brands in more than 20 countries, with more on the way. These donations ensure that families who do not have basic access to the everyday essentials many of us take for granted, can have the cleaning, health and hygiene benefits P&G brands can provide.
Hand Sanitizer to Battle COVID-19
We have installed new lines to start production of hand sanitizer in five manufacturing sites around the world, using it to ensure our people can continue operating safely and sharing it with hospitals, health authorities and relief organizations. We are expanding manufacturing capacity further in additional facilities in the coming weeks and will have a capacity of at least 45,000 liters per week when fully operational.
Work is under way to produce critically needed face masks at nearly a dozen P&G manufacturing sites around the world. We're up and running already in China. We have teams working to install capacity in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, and will quickly begin production in the coming weeks. This is important for several reasons:
- It will increase the supply of masks for hospitals, first responders and other organizations by reducing market demand for production and industrial use;
- It helps us create a safe working environment for P&G people;
Long term, it will allow us to directly help many communities across the globe where there is unprecedented need for protective supplies.
