P&G shareholders vote to protect forests. What will P&G do now? ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌‌

“P&G’s CEO David Taylor has been trying to convince shareholders and customers that the company is doing enough for forests. Losing this shareholder resolution by a huge margin is a slap in David Taylor’s face and a clear rebuke. The owners of the company are saying directly to the CEO, ‘You have failed and you need to do more to protect forests.”

- Todd Paglia, Executive Director at Stand.earth.

I got good news!

In a truly historic move, two-thirds of Procter & Gamble (P&G) shareholders voted YES on a proposal to protect the boreal forest of Canada and tropical forests in Southeast Asia. This is a momentous and a groundbreaking development that requires P&G management to take action. Now it’s up to the CEO and executives to do the right thing. Your support helped make this win happen – so thank you.

For years, P&G executives have refused to stop sourcing its pulp from critical caribou habitat for Charmin toilet paper. But the company’s shareholders sent a clear message that they want the company to do more to protect forests. Now that we've got the backing of investors worth billions of dollars, we are pushing P&G to make commitments to respect Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) and stop working with suppliers who operate in caribou habitat.

We need to mobilize while the heat is on P&G executives. Sign now to urge P&G to make commitments and stop destroying intact forests and endangering caribou.

In the weeks leading up to P&G's annual general meeting earlier this month, Stand.earth and our coalition partner NRDC engaged with some of P&G’s biggest investors. We held a webinar to expose the ways Indigenous and frontline communities have been historically impacted by P&G’s destructive forest sourcing, land grabbing, and poor labor practices in the boreal forest of Canada as well as tropical forests in Malaysia and Indonesia, where the company sources some of its palm oil and fiber from. Stand organizers also held a 72-hour vigil outside of P&G headquarters in Cincinnati – joined by interfaith leaders, and youth climate activists.

We need to take urgent action to leverage this moment and push P&G to stop disrespecting Indigenous people and their sovereignty by demolishing their lands and stop doing business with suppliers who produce pulp from caribou habitat. P&G needs to commit to these two steps by the end of the year.
