Our first formal sustainability report has helped us establish a baseline on all fronts and will guide us on upcoming sustainability projects for years ahead. USANA has spent the last three decades investing in our people and the planet, but we know we have more work to do. We will continue to push for excellence and integrity in all our efforts.

Our Definition of Sustainability

At USANA, we define our approach to sustainability as the process through which we meet the needs of today without compromising our ability to meet the needs of the future. Our core values—health, excellence, integrity, and community—drive every decision we make. We strive to create the healthiest family on earth by empowering the individual and embracing our diversity. We understand that healthy bodies need a healthy planet to thrive. We eagerly accept the duties of environmental stewardship, sustainable packaging, and responsible sourcing. Community is at our core. Each day, we look for ways to be better listeners and positively collaborate with our communities. We always strive to improve the well-being of each individual person and place we impact.

By committing to social and environmental responsibilities, we place greater value in our planet, our people, and our business. USANA believes in a brighter future.
