ALWAYS BEEN A PART
OF OUR HERITAGE
Lennox International (LII) manufactures some of our
industry’s most energy efficient products, including
the Lennox Ultimate Comfort System
rooftop units for commercial
buildings and STRATUS
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
All employees share a responsibility
to uphold our high standard of ethics,
which are embodied in our core values
of Integrity, Respect and Excellence.

Conduct and numerous other ethics-
related topics such as conflicts of interest, insider
trading and antitrust violations.
