Herbalife Nutrition Mongolia Receives Green Hero Award for Environmental Sustainability

As a global company present in more than 90 countries, environmental sustainability is an integral part of our business strategy. We focus on reducing packaging material and developing new product packaging solutions that are safe, functional, and environmentally friendly to promote a sustainable future.

The validation of our efforts from reputable, independent third parties of our company’s sustainability is something we take great pride in. We are thrilled that Herbalife Nutrition in Mongolia has received the Green Hero award from the Tuvshin Saikhan Center for recycling almost five tons of waste over the last three years.

Our Focus on Environmental Sustainability

According to the research, 1.4 million tons of waste is being produced annually in Mongolia. You can imagine why sustainability and reducing our impact on the environment are vital priorities for Herbalife Nutrition. We are committed to reducing the amount of plastic and paper we use in our packaging and the amount of waste we generate.

In 2016, Herbalife Nutrition Mongolia joined the recycling program run by Tuvshin Saikhan Center to contribute to the ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ initiative of the country. Within this program’s framework, a total of 3.3 tons of plastic containers and 1.4 tons of carton boxes were recycled, and therefore, eliminated from the waste streams.

We’ve dedicated a specific space in the Sales Center area to collect empty canisters and ship recyclable materials to the recycling facilities once in two months. This initiative has received a high level of engagement from employees and independent members and is a number one priority of our executive leaders.

Building It Better

Herbalife Nutrition and its branch in Mongolia will continue to reduce paper and plastic materials from the office waste streams and add a special coating to magazines, catalogs allowing them to be recycled and upcycled. We also recognize the need to work with governments, NGOs, businesses, and the waste sector to help develop infrastructure and increase consumer awareness to promote recycling.

I want to thank all Herbalife Nutrition staff, third-party Universal Logistics Mongolia, and our Independent Members for responding to our call to action and contribute massively to recycling canisters through our collection box. Our sustainability initiative is truly a collective effort, led and supported by everyone for everyone.
