The goal: Reaching over 1 million women and children by 2030.
Seth Flowerman, President and CEO of PLT, commented: “The PLT People+Planet Initiative has been established to expand our efforts on behalf of both environmental and human issues—going beyond our everyday activities of promoting human health and wellness. This initiative supports and is guided by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by all United Nations Members States in 2015. We look to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals as a framework to guide our social responsibility and sustainability initiatives. At PLT, our people and our company have been long-time supporters of Vitamin Angels and the work that they do. We're excited to have this opportunity to expand our involvement through a corporate partnership with this impactful public health nonprofit.”
As part of the initiative, PLT is also working to support organizations that support planetary wellness, provide food to families in need, and bring educational opportunities to more than 1 million children.
