"Shaklee led the way in achieving carbon neutrality in 2000, and has mobilized its networks to plant a million trees for the planet which is not only a great achievement, but an inspiration to all of us, especially in the corporate sector."
Dr. Wangari Maathai, 2004 Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Founder of the Green Belt Movement and Global Ambassador for Shaklee’s "A Million Trees. A Million Dreams™" campaign
"We're delighted to partner with the Shaklee Corporation. Partnerships with private companies are crucial to the overall mission to end poverty in the poorest places of the world. Promoting solar energy in African villages will not only provide much-needed electricity, but also encourage renewable energy sources as a sustainable model."
Dr. Jeffrey Sachs, Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University, is the author of The End of Poverty: Economic Possibilities for Our Time.
"I don't know a company that's doing more to make environmental stewardship part of its core business practice and its commitment to the public than Shaklee. I have to say it's really quite impressive to see a company that committed to go carbon neutral before it became fashionable. You know it's a big deal in 2007 to do it, but here's a company that thought of it seven years ago. That really deserves credit and what a leadership position it provides for Shaklee."

"This is a commitment I love. Roger Barnett, the president of Shaklee Corporation, has made a commitment for his company to become net fully carbon neutral, 100 percent carbon neutral. Shaklee intends to oversee the purchasing and installation of solar energy to provide decentralized electrification to the Millennium Villages that Dr. Jeff Sachs is doing so much to develop.This is a great deal.Thank you very much, Roger and thank you, Shaklee."
