Shaklee has made a new sustainability pledge to expand its carbon offset program, source recycled and recyclable materials, and reduce its packaging shipping weight.
Included in this commitment to make people and the planet healthier, Shaklee will convert 100% of its packaging and shipping materials to recyclable, reusable, refillable, compostable or PCR-based materials by 2025. The company’s Climate Neutral initiative will also cover Scope 3 carbon emissions, including those produced by suppliers, shipping partners, employees and more by 2025.
Additional goals include:
- Reducing packaging weight by an estimated 70%
- Saving an estimated 220,500 pounds of packaging materials from landfills
- Keeping an estimated 627 truckloads off the road
These efforts are a continuation of a pledge to plant 10 million trees in 10 years. To date, the company has planted more than 2 million trees.
“As a purpose-driven company, everything we do is to ensure the health and longevity of people and the planet,” said Roger Barnett, Chairman and CEO of Shaklee Corporation. “Building on our longstanding commitment to sustainability, we are now taking our efforts to the next level by setting goals that will benefit our entire Shaklee community and help us continue to reduce our environmental impact and create a healthier world for us all. We are dedicated to continuing our ongoing efforts to maintain a net zero impact on the environment and hope to inspire other companies to do the same.”
