Our award-winning Mission Green® program helps us ensure that our products and processes have as small an impact on the environment as possible.That includes utilizing alternative energy sources and reducing waste materials from our packaging.
Through Mission Green®, we strive to increase energy consumption from renewable sources by 20% in 5 years, reduce emissions by 10% in 5 years, and recycle 50% of waste generated in 5 years. Those are just some of the goals we’ve set for ourselves, andwe know we can realize them, just like we achieved LEED Gold Certification for our Panorama City plant and became a partner of The Climate Registry.
