Leviton's Network Solutions Unit Achieves Carbon Neutrality

Leviton's Network Solutions Business Unit, a  global manufacturer of copper and fiber cabling systems, announced it achieved carbon neutrality. 

The business unit completed the goal along with its global sustainability consultancy Sphera, and the goal is inclusive of Scope 1 and 2 and selected Scope 3 emissions. 

Leviton used a three-step process of measure, reduce and offset to attain carbon neutrality. In 2021, Sphera measured Leviton's global carbon footprint, and through analysis identified areas of potential improvement. 

Leviton Network Solutions lowered its carbon emissions by 55% mainly through investment, including the transition to clean energy providers that power some of the company’s largest manufacturing facilities and investing in on-site solar power at the Glenrothes, Scotland, facility. 

Leviton Network Solutions invested in clean energy-focused carbon offset projects offered through companies in regions where the company operates. 

Similar to Leviton Manufacturing of Canada ULC, which achieved carbon neutrality in 2023, the network solutions business committed to be carbon neutral by 2025.

Leviton launched its CN2030 Sustainability Program in September of 2022 with the goal of achieving company-wide carbon neutrality by the year 2030. 

"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 our CN2030 sustainability program goals. Now that Network Solutions achieved carbon neutrality two years earlier than planned, we are more excited than ever to achieve carbon neutrality company-wide by 2030," said Ross Goldman, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Leviton Network Solutions and Chief Sustainability Officer, Leviton, in a statement.
