This past year has been one of momentous challenges for all of humanity.

However, through the isolation shone the depths of our compassion. Despite fear, we displayed a remarkable resilience. Time and again, we chose the path of hope, and that has made all the difference.

There is no greater force than optimism. It can vanquish any adversity and make opportunities out of obstacles. And at Colgate-Palmolive, it helped us deliver on the expectations of our stakeholders yet again.

This report is an homage to our purpose, our people, and everything that can be achieved with

the strength of a smile.

A smile can beat
all odds

Dear Shareholder Family,

The past 12 – 15 months have certainly been among the most challenging of time. The pandemic, in some form or manner, has affected every one of us, directly or indirectly.

While there remains uncertainty in the context of a third or even a fourth wave, our commitment of reimagining a healthier future for our people, the communities we serve, and our planet has only strengthened.
