SWISSE AND THE ENVIRONMENT
We consider nature as a key strategic business partner and so, wherever possible, Swisse products are formulated with natural ingredients. But our relationship with nature is not all about taking. It’s about giving back, too.
We are one of only 28 organisations in Australia that are certified by the National Carbon Offset Standard (NCOS) as a Carbon Neutral Organisation. That means we offset carbon emissions associated with our organisation and are audited on a regular basis. When selecting how to offset our carbon, we take many elements into consideration including but not limited to; standard of offset, location, impact on native flora and fauna, and communities impacted and empowered.
On top of this, we know that getting out of the office and into nature is a part of the life we all love. The Swisse team values health and happy in harmony with the natural environment. It makes sense and it feels right.
We are proud to be taking a leadership role in protecting and preserving our natural environment.
SWISSE AND THE COMMUNITY
Swisse would not be the success story it is without the support of the community, so we understand that nourishing that community is vital for our continued success. Each team member is allocated a day of work to volunteer with one of our charity partners allowing every person in the organisation insight into those in the community that need our support. We support a number of organisations with fundraising, nutritional support programs, research, and incentivising programs to keep those in need on track.
Centre to the work we do in the community is the philanthropic arm of our business; the Celebrate Life Foundation, which is fully managed by the Swisse team.
LBG, the global standard for measuring and benchmarking corporate community investment, reports on the contributions of both Swisse and the Celebrate Life Foundation to the community.
LBG Director Simon Robinson said of Swisse and the Celebrate life Foundation, "LBG is the international standard by which companies around the world measure their contributions to the community, what happens and what changes as a result. Companies that join LBG are serious about community and seek to continually improve their impact on the communities in which they operate. Swisse has been a member of LBG in Australia for two years and has contributed well above the average in regard to the percentage contributed against profit, revenue and per employee in both 2014 and 2015. I commend Swisse on their achievements and look forward to working with them into the future."
CELEBRATE LIFE FOUNDATION
The Celebrate Life Foundation's name encapsulates its mission and vision - helping people celebrate life every day. We believe your way of life directly impacts the joy you experience, and that nurturing your mind and body through the three pillars of wellness, is the key to celebrating life every day.
On a practical level, The Celebrate Life Foundation aims to inspire wellness throughout the community, by addressing Australia’s biggest health challenge – growing rates of preventable disease. To make this happen, we support charity programs and research initiatives that promote a greater awareness and encourage action around the three pillars of lifelong wellness: Mindfulness, Movement and Nutrition.
