Energy Management

Total energy consumed, percentage renewable

CG-BF-130a.1

666,112 global absolute megawatt hours (MWh) in CY2019.

Goal to achieve 100% renewable electricity in the U.S. and Canada in 2021. 70-megawatt Virtual Power Purchase Agreement executed in November 2019. Purchases under this VPPA are expected to support about 50% of Clorox’s 100% renewable electricity goal for U.S. and Canada operations beginning in January 2021; the renewable energy we receive under the VPPA along with other market purchases of renewable energy credits mean Clorox is expected to meet its 100% renewable electricity goal beginning in 2021, four years ahead of the original plan

  1. In addition to reporting against Consumer Goods Sector: Household and Personal Products Standard, we have included select metrics on GHG emissions and energy management from other SASB sector frameworks [Food & Beverage: Agricultural Products Standards, Consumer Goods: Building Products & Furnishings Standards].
  2. Metric has been calculated based on CY19 purchases of primary and secondary packaging for global operations, and excludes data from contract manufactured product packaging from suppliers that procure packaging materials on our behalf.
  3. Data has been calculated using the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s recyclability assessment tool, which is based on the findings of its New Plastics Economy 2020 Recycling Survey and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s definition of recyclable packaging. Recyclability reporting is based on CY18 U.S. sales data and is estimated to reflect global results for this metric. We believe CY18 sales data is representative of CY19 sales given there were no material changes in the company’s product mix during this time period.
