Allocating Funds to Achieve Continuous Energy Improvements
Colgate-Palmolive's capital expenditure budget (CEB) has executive support where they regularly communicate the expectation that each site will set aside a certain percentage of their capital expenditure budget for energy reduction projects each year. Furthermore, the technical directors review and track the facilities' CEB to ensure that energy reduction projects are included and carried out. The plant directors and managers also ensure that their facilities implement energy reduction projects and that annual energy reduction goals are set and met. Lastly, the individual facility leadership teams also ensure the CEB money is allocated to energy projects by supporting the implementation of energy reduction projects.
