We Can’t Have Pink Without GREEN.
“Sustainability” is a term you often hear these days. Ever wondered what it really means? Sustainability
means meeting our current needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet
theirs. Our 2021 Global Sustainability and Social Impact Report reflects a 360-degree plan detailing the
ways Mary Kay will continue to contribute to the greater good.
Why this? Why now?
From the day Mary Kay opened the doors to her company in 1963, our business has reflected the Golden Rule values of our founder.
Mary Kay Ash was a woman of enormous business savvy who understood how to lead with her heart. Her commitment to Go-Give
action shaped every decision. So while Mary Kay’s 2021 commitments to sustainable growth and transparency exemplify
corporate responsibility, they also reflect a legacy of action we’ve been building for nearly 60 years.
Through our Pink Changing LivesSM initiatives, we donated millions of dollars to organizations
around the world focused on supporting cancer research, protecting survivors from domestic abuse,
beautifying our communities, empowering women and girls, as well as other social impact programs.
Through our historic Pink Doing GreenSM initiatives, new building projects achieved LEED
certification, a reduced amount of operational waste went into landfills, over a million trees were
planted to support carbon reduction efforts and we improved water efficiency in our manufacturing facilities.
We have committed to doing more.
The 2021 Global Sustainability and Social Impact Report outlines a 10-year plan that will guide our corporate decisions,
shape our policies and create positive change. We hope you review the report to learn more about our journey,
and join us in making this vision a reality.
Mary Kay’s mission is unchanged: to enrich the lives of women and their families. As the challenges
facing our community evolve, we’re evolving to meet them. One individual can make a difference.
Together, we can change the world.
