CAMPAIGN: Planet in Balance

CONTENT: Article

According to leading experts, climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our generation. Changes including extreme temperatures, rising sea levels and more frequent weather-related disasters are being observed and are projected to continue. The potential impacts of climate change are also varied. In some parts of the world, water scarcity is expected to increase; in other places, greater rainfall and rising temperatures will have a serious impact. At the same time, the global demand for natural resources is on the rise and we expect there will be increased competition for the materials used in the products we create.

Our purpose as a company is helping people on their path to better health, which we believe is intrinsically linked to the sustainability of our planet. As part of our Prescription for a Better World, we have made Planet in Balance a strategic priority and are working to mitigate climate change, reduce our resource use and embed sustainability into our products and supply chain.
