CLIMATE CHANGE AFFECTS US ALL: OUR HEALTH, OUR LIVELIHOODS, OUR HOPE FOR THE FUTURE. SHAKLEE HAS TAKEN CONSISTENT STEPS TO REDUCE OUR CLIMATE IMPACTS AND HELP FIND SOLUTIONS TO THE CLIMATE CRISIS. IT'S ONE OF THE WAYS WE WORK TOWARD A BETTER FUTURE.
Shaklee Corporation is the first certified Climate Neutral Company in the world, having earned that distinction back in the relative "dark ages" of voluntary corporate climate action in 2000. In our ongoing efforts to minimize our negative impacts and maximize our positive impacts, Shaklee purchases 100% renewable energy and greenhouse gas emissions offsets for worldwide activities.
Given the increasingly rapid rate of climate change, and understanding that these changes are taking place more quickly than the best science predicted, Shaklee has aligned its vision for a better future with its day-to-day and long-term business activities.
Shaklee's 2010 Carbon Neutral Protocol
Shaklee is carbon neutral. The greenhouse gas inventory for 2010 covering all Shaklee operations worldwide include US, Canada, Japan, China, Mexico, Malaysia and Taiwan, were reviewed by a third party, WSP Environment & Energy, in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol for all six Kyoto-defined greenhouse gases. Shaklee set operational boundaries for the inventory of its worldwide greenhouse gas emissions and worked with WSP Environment & Energy to calculate the carbon footprint from Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions. The total amount of Shaklee's greenhouse gas emissions from worldwide operations in 2010 was measured and converted to metric tons of CO2 equivalent. Shaklee has partnered with Sterling Planet to offset its small carbon footprint in North America and Asia with funding for alternative energy projects. The projects include Green-e certified renewable energy credits (Iowa wind projects) and a landfill gas utilization project in Massachusetts.
