P&G and U.S. EPA Sign Sustainability Research Agreement
to help optimize design and decision-making across a wide range of operations and supply choices, as well as various environmental sustainability measures. The EPA has developed a comprehensive list of sustainability metrics and performance indicators that can be used to quantify sustainability in a manufacturing and supply chain context, while P&G has a diverse set of manufacturing operations and supply chains that can be leveraged to optimize how such metrics are used to guide improvement choices. The work under this CRADA will leverage P&G's manufacturing and supply chain knowledge with the EPA's work on metrics to develop a modeling and assessment tool that can be used to assess future product design, material sourcing, and manufacturing options.
