August 25, 2023 – Leviton Canada says it had committed to reaching carbon neutrality by 2025 but, in fact, achieved this objective two years earlier, in the second quarter of 2023.
“Leviton Canada is committed to ensuring that we integrate sustainable practices into every aspect of our operations […]” said Jason Prevost, president and COO. “We take immense pride in our dedicated employees whose relentless efforts have propelled us towards carbon neutrality, reflecting a united commitment towards a greener and more sustainable future.”
How did they do it?
With energy-efficient lighting in place and hydroelectricity powering most of the facility, Leviton Canada says it identified transportation (upstream and downstream) as the largest contributor to its carbon footprint.
“In late 2022, we implemented an order consolidation program in Canada. Through the order consolidation process—and an increase in our fill rate—we reduced our downstream kilometres travelled by 50%,” says the company. “In 2022, our products account for 10 million kilometres versus 21 million kilometres in 2021.”
Some background: in 2022, Leviton announced a goal to achieve company-wide carbon neutrality by 2030 (CN2030), and its ambition to achieve net-zero carbon by 2050.
