The Path 10 mins

Ann Tracy, Colgate-Palmolive

On Zero100’s series THE PATH, we hear from top supply chain executives to learn about their career journey: where they started, the path they took through supply chain, and reflections on how their career connects to and impacts some of the biggest challenges facing the world today.

This episode is about Ann Tracy, the Chief Sustainability Officer at Colgate Palmolive. We’ve all heard of Colgate toothpaste and Palmolive dish soap, right? But how often do we think about the logistics that get the raw ingredients into those tubes and bottles, and what it takes to get those tubes and bottles onto shelves and into our hands? Well, Ann’s thinking about stuff like that pretty much 24/7. On top of that she’s in a race against time to do it with increasing sustainability. As a result, over the course of her three decades with the company, Ann’s work has been at the center of supply chain logistics, sustainability programs, and social impact initiatives.
