USANA releases its first annual sustainability report, which provides a high-level view of how the company prioritizes and manages its corporate sustainability efforts, including environmental, social, and governance (ESG) priorities and other issues important to its business and stakeholders.
The report describes USANA’s progress for the 2020 fiscal year and reflects sustainability issues that have been deemed important through a comprehensive materiality assessment that was completed by the company.
“Our vision to create the healthiest family on earth is one we are fully invested in, and I think this detailed report is a great example of that investment. USANA’s core values—health, excellence, integrity, and community—influence every decision we make and are the values that drive our sustainability program. I would like to thank our stakeholders for their ongoing support of the company, and our Board of Directors and the entire USANA family for their dedication and commitment to helping us execute and achieve our vision,” said Kevin Guest, USANA’s chairman of the board and CEO.
USANA’s 2020 report also contained various statistics about the company’s recent achievements in ESG. Some of the stats include:
- USANA reused and recycled more than 50% of waste in its operations, with 202.7 tons of cardboard, plastic, and paper recycled
- USANA saves an average of 2.67M gallons of water per year through several water-saving initiatives
