OUR COMMITMENT

TO SUSTAINABILITY

AT LENNOX 

INTERNATIONAL (LII),  

SUSTAINABLE 

PRACTICES HAVE 

ALWAYS  BEEN A PART 

OF OUR HERITAGE 

OF INNOVATION.

Lennox International (LII) manufactures some of our 

industry’s most energy efficient products, including 

the Lennox Ultimate Comfort System

TM 

for residential 

consumers, Energence

®

 rooftop units for commercial 

buildings and STRATUS

®

 refrigerated reach-in 

merchandising cases for food retail applications. 

Sustainable practices have always been a part of 

our heritage of innovation. Dating back 

to 1895, Dave Lennox invented the 

first riveted steel furnace, which burned 

cleaner than any other furnace of its time. 

Today, these practices are reflected in 

the design, manufacture, distribution 

and performance of all our products. 

Our sustainability theme, “Innovation 

meets Responsibility,” embodies our 

commitment to the environment, while 

producing the industry’s most innovative products. 

Sustainability impacts our factories, distribution 

centers, sales branches, retail outlets and our 

business campuses. We do more with less, 

reduce expenses and invest wisely to meet the 

needs of our customers. We make significant 

investments to reduce energy consumption, solid 

waste, water use and greenhouse gas emissions 

across the company’s operations. In our factories, 

our plant managers lead their teams to eliminate 

wasteful practices and conserve natural resources. 

Our diversity and inclusion programs drive 

professional development and leverage our 

employees’ unique perspectives. We measure 

employee engagement through regular employee 

surveys and report progress against objectives. 

We support the communities where we live and 

work through financial contributions and employee 

volunteerism. We support over 100 non-profit 

organizations focused on education, the arts, 

the environment, youth development and health 

and human services. Our employees volunteer their 

time and talents in support of numerous deserving 

organizations around the globe.  

Safety is always a priority and we are succeeding 

with safety programs that dramatically decreased our 

recordable injury frequency rate and lost-time injury 

frequency rate. We are committed to ensuring every 

employee returns home safe at the end of 

each day.  

All employees share a responsibility 

to uphold our high standard of ethics, 

which are embodied in our core values 

of Integrity, Respect and Excellence. 

We provide ongoing ethics training and 

awareness on the LII Code of Business 

Conduct and numerous other ethics-

related topics such as conflicts of interest, insider 

trading and antitrust violations.

Our Sustainability Report is a snapshot of LII’s ongoing 

commitment to sustainable business practices. Our 

customers, shareholders and employees care that 

we are an environmentally sound company and 

our employees work hard every day to achieve 

our sustainability objectives and deliver on our 

commitments.
