Protecting Our Planet

Strategic Priorities

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. 

  • Colleague green actions have saved 3 million gallons of water and avoided 45,000 pounds of waste

    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.

    Collaboration increases awareness, builds partnerships.

  • Retrofitted 1,740 retail locations with interior LED lighting, which reduced consumption by 75,000 megawatt hours

    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.

    Reducing our impact.

  • Increased free-from products to 150 items without dyes, alcohol, artificial flavors or preservatives

    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.

    Healthier, more sustainable products.
