Nature’s Sunshine Products has officially converted its Spanish Fork manufacturing facility, which manufactures the majority of the company’s herbal supplements, to an infrastructure that is powered by 100% solar energy.
With this announcement, the company made significant strides to meet its ESG goal to transition its owned manufacturing facilities to 100% renewable energy sources by 2023. The switch to solar energy is also a move toward achieving other ESG goals, including the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2025, zero waste to landfill by 2025 at U.S. distribution centers, and a 33% waste reduction at manufacturing facilities by 2025.
“Nature’s Sunshine is committed to engaging in sustainable business practices at every step of our supply chain and we’ve set goals to hold ourselves accountable,” said Trent McCausland, VP of Global Sustainability and Transparency. “I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved so far–powering our owned manufacturing facilities completely with renewable energy–and look forward to continued collaboration with the team to achieve our other sustainability goals and beyond.”
