Young Living Takes Sustainability Commitment to Next Level
Lehi, Utah-based Young Living Essential Oils, a world leader in essential oils, recently announced that it has been working with SCS Global Services (SCS)—a global expert in environmental and sustainability certification, standards development, responsible sourcing and business solutions—to advance its proprietary Seed to Seal® program to the next level.
Successful pilot testing of enhanced Seed to Seal supply chain authentication protocols in the U.S. and abroad has confirmed that these protocols offer greater supply chain assurance, reinforcing Young Living’s mission to become the industry standard-bearer for unparalleled sustainability performance and practices.
“Stewardship of the earth goes hand in hand with responsible business practices,” said Lauren Walker, Young Living Chief Supply Officer. “That’s why we’re working collaboratively with SCS—a leading third-party certifier and standards developer—to ensure that the environmental standards of our Seed to Seal® program are the best they can be.”
“Young Living has worked hard to ensure that every aspect of its operations achieves the highest level of environmental, ethical and quality accountability,” said Stanley Mathuram, P.E., Senior Vice President for SCS Global Services. “Consistent with its goal of continuously improving all aspects of its business, the enhanced sourcing protocols are enabling Young Living to more effectively evaluate its own performance and that of its supply chain, identify improvement opportunities and determine the best steps forward.”
Young Living’s strict Seed to Seal® process ensures that all products are genuine, free of synthetic chemicals and pure.
SCS programs span a cross-section of industries, recognizing achievements in green building, consumer product manufacturing, food and agriculture, forestry, power generation and more. SCS is a chartered beneﬁt corporation, reﬂecting its commitment to socially and environmentally responsible business practices.
