Shaklee announces its new sustainability commitments

Shaklee makes sustainability commitments, which include 100% sustainable packaging by 2025.

Shaklee (Pleasanton, CA) revealed new sustainability commitments that include short and long-term goals focused on expanding its carbon-offset program, sourcing recycled or recyclable materials, and reducing packaging and shipping weight.

By 2025, the company’s pledge for the planet includes:

  • Sustainable Packaging: 100% of all packaging and shipping material will be recyclable, reusable, refillable, compostable, or made with PCR materials.
  • Beyond Carbon Neutral: Shaklee’s Climate Neutral initiative will cover all Scope 3 carbon emissions, including those produced by suppliers, shipping partners, employees, and more.

In 2022, its goal is to begin replacing all plastic canisters with sustainable bags and introduce reusable solutions to minimize plastic resulting in:

  • Reduced packaging weight by an estimated 70%
  • An estimated 220,500 pounds of packaging materials saved from landfills
  • An estimated 627 truckloads off the road

“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, in a press release. “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.”
