CN2030: How Leviton Drives Sustainability

by Teddi Strassburger on March 19, 2024

8794B_Mar_Campaign_CN2030_AccuTech_500x500Ensuring a sustainable future for our planet is not just a choice - it's a necessity. Together, we can all work towards a healthier and more eco-friendly world.

Leviton is one of the companies leading this work in our industry. They are committed to achieving company-wide carbon neutrality by 2030, an initiative they call CN2030. Even further than that, they intend to achieve net zero by 2050. Leviton's initiative - and all the steps they're taking to ensure it succeeds - drive sustainability both in their own company and throughout our industry. 

CN2030 represents Leviton's ongoing commitment to reduce its environmental impact in five key areas: carbon, energy, waste, recycling, water... and the innovations that empower customers to be more sustainable. Let's take a deeper look at what Leviton is doing:

  • Carbon
    • Leviton combines shipments to reduce emissions from transportation
    • Carbon offsets include investments in hydropower and transportation projects
  • Energy
    • Leviton-made LED lighting and sensors consume up to 55% less energy in their facilities
  • Waste
    • Leviton helps customers reduce job site waste with recyclable cable boxes and recyclable and reusable wooden reels
    • SMARTPAK™ cable packaging can reduce cardboard and cable scrap by up to 15% 
    • Leviton offers factory-terminated cables made to the exact lengths you need, eliminating termination scrap material on the job site
  • Recycling
    • Leviton uses recycled materials in the copper, insulation, and filler materials in their category cables 
    • Leviton's own recycling programs divert tons of waste from landfills every year
  • Water
    • Leviton's closed-loop water cooling systems reduce water use by 89%
    • To prevent polluted water from entering our natural bodies of water, Leviton's onsite treatment systems thoroughly clean manufacturing water 

Innovations in Sustainability

Beyond all of the innovative sustainable solutions listed above, Leviton protects the environment by designing, manufacturing, and delivering sustainable network infrastructure. Their smaller cable options, for example, use less material and therefore have a 5-7% smaller carbon footprint when compared with standard patch cable. Shutters on cassettes and adapter plates minimize or even eliminate the use of dust plugs that would typically be thrown away on the job site.
Ensuring a sustainable future is not something any of us can do alone. Efforts like Leviton's CN2030 initiative are leading the way, and Leviton offers many ways for customers to join in. Contact your local Accu-Tech representative to learn more, or visit Leviton's page on our website.
