Sustainability Implementation Network

Colgate's Sustainability Implementation Network consists of Sustainability Owners and Sponsors representing every business function and business unit in the company.

Owners lead, own and execute sustainability strategy, and are at the highest level of each function or business unit. Some owners are also members of the Global Sustainability Steering Committee. They confirm that Colgate's sustainability strategies are being implemented effectively and that progress is being made against sustainability goals.

Sponsors report directly to the owners; they are responsible for integrating and implementing sustainability business strategies on the ground at the functional/ business unit level. The sponsors are the primary advocates for sustainability. They lead sustainability projects, catalog existing sustainability-related activities, and identify and share best practices. Sponsors may identify a team of Champions to assist in implementing the sustainability strategy.
