Learn how Amway is using our expertise to benefit people and the planet

| May 21, 2019

As Amway co-founder Rich DeVos once explained, “We believe it is essential to be more than a corporation that simply makes or markets stuff. To remain viable, we know we must first improve the well-being of people around the world.”
At Awmay, we believe in supporting something bigger than our business. We believe in supporting the health and empowerment of people as well as the health of the world. It sets us apart. You can learn more about our accomplishments in the new global Corporate Social Responsibility report.

The stories of our impact demonstrate some of the important ways Amway is helping people live better lives around the world. For example:

Empowerment of People

Amway fights childhood malnutrition with the Nutrilite™ Power of 5 Campaign

All people need good nutrition, which provides the opportunity for healthy growth and development, and Amway is in an ideal position to help. The Nutrilite™ Power of 5 Campaign fights childhood malnutrition by providing Nutrilite™ Little Bits™, a micronutrient powder, to families of hundreds of thousands of malnourished children. When mixed with their food once a day, Nutrilite™ Little Bits™ adds essential nutrients that help them survive, thrive and grow.

Health of the People

We offer opportunities for entrepreneurs – many in developing countries — to develop lifelong business and personal skills

With access to business and learning tools, Amway Business Owners learn practical skills that they use in their business and beyond, including budgeting, public speaking and financial management. In 200 cities across Russia, for example, 2,500 mom entrepreneurs are being trained to own and operate small businesses. This effort is organized in partnership with national and regional governments and includes a microfinance/loan program.

Health of the World

Amway’s sustainability programs make the planet and people healthier

Amway’s commitment to a healthy environment is reflected in our products and philosophies. We focus on continuous improvement, reducing waste, and sustainability as we go about our business. For years, we’ve been working to reduce water consumption and waste while relying on more power from renewable resources. We are working to recycle to the greatest extent possible and to reduce the amount of waste created by operations.

We have established global partnerships to expand our reach

We partner with farmers around the world who employ thousands of workers and support their local economies while meeting our quality standards and helping us stand behind our products. Amway also partners with the United Nations and actively supports nine of their 17 Sustainable Development Goals. These goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
