In 2000, Shaklee obtained Climate Neutral certification and totally offset its greenhouse gas emissions.
From 2000 to 2021, Shaklee reduced its U.S. GHG emissions by 76%. Some of those reductions have been achieved through consolidating our distribution and maximizing distribution efficiencies. Others were a result of targeted efforts to conserve water, gas and electricity in company-controlled facilities. Still others are a reflection of more people working from home during the pandemic. Shaklee plans to continue to offset 100% of its greenhouse gas emissions while simultaneously working toward additional reductions.
Shaklee plans to continue to offset 100% of its greenhouse gas emissions including all new and expanding offices worldwide. Additionally, Shaklee continues to look at ways to reduce its footprint. Some of the projects Shaklee implemented in the recent past include:
- Replaced incandescent lighting with compact fluorescent (CFL) lighting
- Installed a motion sensor power strip in each office cubical to cut down on unnecessary power draw; these strips turn off task lights and computer monitors after five minutes of inactivity
- Mandatory shutdown of all computers every evening
- Completed a lighting retrofit, including skylight installation, at the Groveport, Ohio distribution facility
Shaklee also works closely with its electricity suppliers to voluntarily shed load to help avoid rolling blackouts
