Gilbert, Arizona-based Isagenix celebrated Earth Day, April 22, with a commitment to increase its sustainability efforts and find new ways to help protect the planet.
The health and wellness company, which achieved nearly $1 billion in sales for 2016, launched its corporate sustainability program, Green Today for Tomorrow, last fall and has since implemented best practice sustainability advances at its world headquarters. This includes reducing plastic waste by eliminating bottled water onsite and partnering with Waste Management on recycling efforts and educating employees on effective recycling methods. In addition, the company achieved LEED certification in recognition of its many green building features, including innovation in design and lighting efficiency.
Now in 12 markets across the globe, Isagenix is evaluating more ways to reduce its global environmental footprint by working with experts at Arizona State University’s Global Sustainability Solutions Services to evaluate and recommend improvements in current product packaging and printed materials.
“As we grow larger as a company, our environmental footprint also continues to expand,” said Erik Coover, Co-Owner and Senior Vice President of Global Field Development. “In keeping with our goal as a legacy company that is impacting lives across the globe, we are committed to doing what’s right in terms of impacting the planet. That means not only increasing our sustainably efforts, but also looking for new ways to do even more.”
On May 20, the company will host its second annual Isagenix Global Give Back Day, an event bringing everyone at Isagenix together to give back to their communities and the planet. The 2016 event spanned nine countries—the United States, Australia, Canada, Colombia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Mexico, New Zealand and Taiwan—and featured Isagenix employees, customers and associates working together on various projects, such as cleaning up beaches and parks, building roofs and gardens, and planting trees.
“People care,” said Coover. “They want to do the right thing and make a difference. If we can collectively make a difference here at Isagenix and educate our growing member base, the ripple effect will be massive.”
