Leviton Slashes Greenhouse Emissions by 29% in Sustainability Report

Leviton has announced that it has successfully dropped greenhouse gas emissions by 29% in comparison to its 2021 baseline year. The reduction was achieved through several sustainability initiatives such as on-site renewable energy generation, energy efficiency initiatives, a move to more renewable energy providers, and investments into carbon offset projects by Leviton.

Some additional 2023 highlights in this year’s report include:

Leviton’s Network Solutions business unit achieved carbon neutrality, with a 55% reduction in GHG emissions from a 2021 baseline.

Leviton’s number of CN2030 program carbon-neutral manufacturing sites increased, growing from 9 in 2022 to 17 in 2023.

Leviton’s Lighting Controls business unit reduced its carbon emissions by 17% from the 2021 baseline year, and now has two facilities that are CN2030 program carbon neutral.

The Commercial & Industrial business unit reduced emissions by 8% from a 2021 baseline.

Two Leviton LIVE sites, where professionals can directly experience Leviton solutions in real-time and further their industry and product knowledge, are now both CN2030 program carbon neutral.  

Leviton Moves Closer to CN2030 Sustainability Goals

The news has been widely celebrated by Leviton as company has larger aspirations of being a carbon neutral company by 2030 with its CN2030 program.

“I am very proud of our company’s achievements to date through our CN2030 program,” said Daryoush Larizadeh, Leviton President and CEO.

“Global greenhouse gas emissions are still on the rise, so as a leader building what’s next to light, power, and connect everyday spaces, it is incumbent upon us to take action and minimize emissions as quickly as possible.”

The CN2030 program is comprised of five action categories where Leviton believes it can have the largest impact: carbon and energy reduction, innovation, reducing jobsite waste, maximizing recycling, and water stewardship.

“We made significant progress last year toward our CN2030 goal, especially with our Network Solutions business unit’s carbon neutrality achievement two years ahead of schedule,” said Ross Goldman, Leviton’s Chief Sustainability Officer and Executive Vice President/General Manager of Leviton Network Solutions.

“We have over twenty major facilities where 62% of their energy has now transitioned to a clean source, and all four of our business units contributed significantly to our CO2e emission reductions. We are more excited than ever to keep the momentum going to further drive our progress toward a lower carbon future.” 

More details on this achievement and additional company progress through fiscal year 2023 are included in Leviton’s second annual sustainability report, which also released today. This includes Scopes 1, 2, and selected Scope 3’s in accordance with the GHG protocol, per the Paris Agreement and World Resources Institute.
