Solgar® and the Environment
Caring for the Environment
We all know that we can make small changes to make big differences and Solgar® is no exception.
Since 2009, Solgar® UK and Ireland has achieved CarbonNeutral company certification by working with The CarbonNeutral Company, a world-leading provider of environemental and carbon reduction solutions, to measure and reduce its CO2 emissions from business activities which include office premises, business travel and fuel consumption.1
Solgar® UK is concered with the impact we all have on the environement both professionally and personally. This is why we go to such great lengths to use glass bottles that we guarantee are 100% recyclable. These bottles also maintain the potency and stability of our nutrients and botanicals. The packing materials we use for deliveries are recycled egg cartons and newspaper off-cuts of recycled paper that we source from local companies. Even the Solgar® boxes are made from environmental grade cardboard.
Solgar's CarbonNeutral initiative also includes investments in carbon credit offset projects and has since investments in projects across the globe, including wind farms and solar energy projects.

1. To achieve CarbonNeutral status, Solgar® is working with The CarbonNeutral Company, a world-leading provider of carbon reduction solutions. Solgar® has reduced its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol, the global standard for carbon neutral certification. The programme involved an independent assessment of the CO2 emissions produced from employee owned cars, company vehicles, business travel (air, rail and road), outbound third party deliveries and premise use of electricity and landfill followed by an offset-inclusive emissions reduction programme. This means that for everyone tonne of GHG emissions that Solgar® produces, it purchases a verified carbon offset which guarantees an equivalent amount of GHG emissions is reduced from the atmosphere through a renewable energy or clean technology project. Solgar® is committed to continuously decrease CO2 emissions.
