I’m proud of how we delivered, pragmatic about the near-term challenges ahead, and resolute about what we can accomplish over the long term,” said Linda Rendle, Clorox CEO.
“We remained true to three operating principles as we navigated the past year: maximizing supply of products across our portfolio, putting people at the center and leading with our values. We also drove our ESG agenda – from inclusion and diversity to plastic and waste reduction to climate action. Guided by our IGNITE strategy, we’re a stronger, more resilient company, well positioned to create value for all our stakeholders now and in the future.”
