Protecting our planet is imperative to delivering on our purpose of helping people on their path to better health. Climate change is affecting global health, and we believe we can play a meaningful role in helping to reverse its devastating effects. We are committed to doing our part, not only because it’s our role as a leader in health care, but because doing so also makes us a more innovative organization, and inspires confidence from our investors, colleagues, partners and customers.
Engaging Internal and External Stakeholders
Advancing our sustainability strategy requires collaboration. We have the ability to leverage our assets, scale and expertise to increase awareness of key sustainability issues with colleagues, customers and business partners, driving our industry forward and developing meaningful partnerships with our key stakeholders.
We continue to implement new technologies and operational practices to minimize our environmental footprint and contribute to healthier, more sustainable communities. With more than 9,900 retail locations, 22 distribution centers, numerous field offices, and a fleet of 2,500 delivery vehicles, we aim to drive efficiency across all aspects of our business – reducing our carbon footprint, energy usage, water consumption, and waste.
Sustainable Products and Packaging
Our commitment to a healthy planet extends into our stores and the homes of our consumers. From beauty and personal care products to food and beverage items, we’re dedicated to taking a holistic approach to health. This includes offering products and packaging that consider environmental impacts and are free from unwanted ingredients.
