In 2016, as a part of the Herbal Essences Sustainability Program, we began purchasing certified renewable electricity credits—which come from windmills—for our Iowa City plant.
That means we’re adding MORE renewable energy to the electricity grid and LESS conventional fuels like coal, nuclear gas, and natural gas.
Green-e’s® program certifies that the Renewable Energy Certificates we purchase meet strict environmental and consumer protection standards established by the non-profit Center for Resource Solutions. Since 2010, our Herbal Essences manufacturing sites around the world have reduced our total absolute energy by about 9% and total absolute gas emissions by more than 15%. We’re doing more so we can lessen our impact on the environment.
