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, engineering 

centers 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 pro- 

fessional development and leverage our employees’ 

unique perspectives. We measure employee engage- 

ment 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 on-

going 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.
