RELEASE: Leviton's Network Solutions Business Unit is carbon neutral

(Information sent by the signatory company)

Leviton's Network Solutions Business Unit committed to being Carbon Neutral by 2025 and is now the first of four Leviton Business Units to achieve Carbon Neutrality.

BOTHELL, Wash., May 14, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Leviton's Network Solutions Business Unit announced today that it has achieved Carbon Neutrality. This achievement was completed with our global sustainability consultancy Sphera and includes Scope 1, Scope 2 emissions and select Scope 3 emissions. Leviton employed a three-step process of measure, reduce and offset to achieve carbon neutrality. In 2021, Sphera measured Leviton's global carbon footprint, and through analysis, we collectively identified areas for potential improvement. Leviton Network Solutions then reduced its carbon emissions by 55% primarily through investments, including transitioning from clean energy providers that power some of our largest manufacturing facilities to investing in solar energy at our Glenrothes, Scotland facility. . Finally, because it is not currently possible to eliminate all carbon emissions, Leviton Network Solutions invested in carbon offset projects focused on clean energy offered through accredited companies in the regions where we operate. Doing so allows Leviton to invest in energy projects that removed or prevented an equivalent amount of carbon from polluting the atmosphere.

Like Leviton Manufacturing of Canada ULC, which achieved carbon neutrality in 2023, the Network Solutions business committed to being carbon neutral by 2025 and achieved the goal much sooner than planned. Leviton launched its CN2030 Sustainability Program in September 2022 with the goal of achieving carbon neutrality across the company by 2030. The company has made significant progress toward that goal over the past two years and continues to be a preferred supplier for The sustainability.

"As a global company, we can contribute to the fight against climate change and hopefully inspire others that this is possible. As such, we are focused on achieving the goals of our CN2030 sustainability program. Now that Network Solutions has achieved the carbon neutrality two years ahead of schedule, we are more excited than ever to achieve carbon neutrality across the company by 2030," said Ross Goldman, executive vice president and general manager of Leviton Network Solutions and chief sustainability officer at Leviton.

The company's 2022 Sustainability Report is published and available on the company's website. In it, Leviton details its commitment to sustainability, its plan to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030, and its ambition to achieve Net Zero by 2050. Leviton announced that its 2023 sustainability report will be available in mid-2024.

"We are very proud of our progress toward achieving carbon neutrality across the company by 2030," said Daryoush Larizadeh, president and CEO of Leviton. "The scientific reports I have read say that as a global community we are not reducing carbon emissions fast enough to achieve the goals outlined in the Paris Agreement. This is something we should all be concerned about and we must act collectively and accelerate reducing carbon emissions."
