We’re excited to share this news from The Sustainability Consortium:

The Sustainability Consortium (TSC) announced today that Spectrum Brands Holdings, Inc. has joined as a member, joining over 100 TSC members working to create more sustainable products for a more sustainable planet. TSC translates the best sustainability science into business tools that are used all over the world to create more sustainable consumer products.

Spectrum Brands is a global consumer products company offering a portfolio of leading brands providing superior value to consumers and customers every day. They combine origin and destination logistics solutions with transportation services across all modes and regions of the world. They will focus their work on identifying environmental and social issues in their product supply chains, reducing their carbon footprint, improving water efficiency and developing an outreach program to positively affect the people in all communities where Spectrum Brands operates.

Euan Murray, TSC Chief Executive, states, “TSC is proud to welcome Spectrum Brands as a member, joining our other TSC members in the collective effort towards creating more sustainable products for a sustainable planet. Spectrum Brands’ portfolio of products and leading brands, along with its global reach, lets us expand our work exponentially. The company’s membership and efforts are invaluable to our mission.”

Spectrum Brands regularly responds to the Walmart Sustainability Index, which is powered by TSC metrics and methodology.

Spectrum Brands Gets Active!

July 5, 2018

0 Comments

June was a busy month at Spectrum Brands! Besides getting outside and getting active for our third annual Day of Service, we celebrated Bike to Work Week and Global Running Day.

For Bike to Work Week, which is June 2-9, we organized five days of events from an after-work 2.5 mile mountain bike ride at Pleasant View’s trails to an early morning group “ride to work and coffee” meet-up. We distributed maps of local bicycle trails to employees and topped off the week with a 20 mile group road ride that ended at Capital Brewery (with two drinks on us!).

June 6th was Global Running Day, which is simply a day for people around the world to celebrate the joys of running. Participation was easy—employees had to pledge to take part in some type of running activity on the day of the event from a solo lap around the block to a long run with friends, or even a game of tag with their kids. The key was to share their passion for the sport and inspire others to get moving. To celebrate, we organized a two-mile run at our world headquarters. The run began at the South end of WHQ at 11:30 a.m. and all participants earned Vitality points and t-shirt.

Congrats to all of our employees who got out and got active in June! Let’s keep it up throughout the summer.

June 14th was our third annual company-wide day of service! This year’s theme was #CommunityWithPurpose. With help from the National Environmental Education Foundation, we organized volunteer events for our employees in eight cities across the country.

Here’s a glimpse into what we did:

  • Removed invasive plants at Marshall Park and Stricker Pond in Madison, WI with help from the Clean Lakes Alliance.
  • Spruced up equestrian trails at Possum Creek with help from Five Rivers MetroParks in Dayton, OH.
  • Weeded, planted, harvested vegetables, and tended crops at Gateway Greening in St. Louis, MO.
  • Partnered with the Laguna Canyon Foundation in Laguna Beach, CA to pick up trash and restore trails impacted by California wildfires.
  • Lent a hand at Nellies Cave Park in Blacksburg, VA mulching, removing invasive species, and cleaning up.
  • Worked on trail maintenance and planting at Tarrywile Park and Mansion in Danbury, CT. 
  • Partnered with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to volunteer at Hagerman Wildlife Refuge near Denison, TX.
  • Spruced up an area impacted by last year’s hurricanes at Amelia Earhart Park in Miami, FL.

“With eight Spectrum Brands locations spread throughout the country engaged in this day of service, we are poised to have a national impact on local parks and nature areas and their connected waterways,” said Spectrum Brands Division Vice President, Chief Sustainability Officer Daniel Hutter in a press release. “By helping employees make the connection between their individual actions and the long-term impact they can have on the natural areas around them, the day gives our employees a chance to be part of ongoing, lasting change.”

We’re so proud of our employees for not being afraid to get their hands dirty and give back to the community! We made a big difference by working together, and we can’t wait to see what more we can do in the years to come. View more photos from our event here.
