Global Mary Kay Facilities LEED the Way in Sustainability Efforts

Two Mary Kay global facilities have received the highly coveted LEED Certifications for state-of-the-art, sustainable, environmentally-friendly construction.

As an international leader in corporate and social responsibility, we understand that every choice we make today impacts the future of our employees, our independent sales force and the communities in which we live and work. We take great pride in the fact that we don’t just talk the talk, but we walk the walk.

In 2018, Mary Kay China was awarded LEED v4 Gold status for its corporate headquarters building located in Shanghai. On its heels, the Richard R. Rogers (R3) Manufacturing / R&D Center in Lewisville, TX opened in 2019, receiving LEED Silver status.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), is the most widely used green building rating system in the world developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED certification is awarded to projects that are designed, constructed, maintained and operated using healthy, highly-efficient and sustainable practices. LEED certification has become an international symbol of green building leadership and excellence in sustainability.

At Mary Kay, it’s our responsibility to drive sustainable business practices, which is why we continuously strive to make our supply chain operations and product offerings environmentally friendly. Receiving the LEED certification is a testament to our overall commitment to the health and wellness of the communities in which we live and work around the world.
