In recognition of its commitment to 100% renewable electricity and to reducing its carbon footprint, Colgate-Palmolive Company today received a 2021 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year Award for Sustained Excellence for its leadership in energy efficiency across global operations. This marks the 11th consecutive year that Colgate has been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy as an authority in energy-saving practices.

The honor from ENERGY STAR® also recognized Colgate's progress towards its long-time goal of reducing Scope 3 emissions by educating consumers about how to save water while using their products. Colgate's Save Water campaign has helped consumers avoid more than an estimated 8.3 million metric tons of CO2 and 155 billion gallons of water since 2016 (that's the amount of water it takes to fill 234,000 Olympic-sized pools).

"Since the Colgate brand is in more homes than any other, we have the opportunity to help people build sustainable habits into their everyday lives," said Ann Tracy, Colgate's Chief Sustainability Officer. "We are honored to be recognized by ENERGY STAR® for Colgate's achievements in sustainability and ongoing efforts to lead action on climate change ? from encouraging suppliers to reduce their energy consumption to making our operations even more energy efficient to helping consumers lead more sustainable lives through the use of our products."

The 2021 ENERGY STAR recognition demonstrates Colgate's ongoing momentum in its mission to reimagine a healthier, more sustainable future for all people, their pets and our planet. As of 2020, Colgate certified its 20th TRUE Zero Waste plant ? more than any other company in the world, was named the top performing Household Products company on the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices, and committed to furthering climate progress through participation in the UN Global Compact's Water Resilience Coalition.
