ADA, MICH., April 22, 2015 /3BL Media/ – Direct selling leader Amway today released findings detailing significant process in its efforts to fight malnutrition, support children globally and advance environmental stewardship.  The impressive results are contained in the company’s 2014 Corporate Social Responsibility Report, published today, along with future goals for a variety of efforts.

In 2014, Amway:

  • Launched its Nutrilite Power of 5 campaign globally in an effort to fight childhood malnutrition.  A total of 7 nations are now receiving Nutrilite Little Bits, a one-gram nutritional supplement powder designed to support children’s nutrition needs in the first five years of life.
  • Volunteered 300 thousand hours through the Amway One by One Campaign for Children.  The campaign features Amway Business Owners and Amway employees donating their time and talent to children’s causes that impact their local communities.
  • Achieved five-year environmental stewardship goals set in 2009, including a 10% reduction in water usage, 15% alternative energy usage reduction, 25% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and a 95% waste recycling rate.

“Today, Amway and our business owners are making a difference around the world,” said Amway Chairman Steve Van Andel and President Doug DeVos in a joint statement. “Initiatives like Amway’s Nutrilite Power of 5 Campaign and the Amway One by One Campaign for Children continue to be incredibly successful. Together, we have helped millions of people realize their potential, become healthier, and live better lives.”
