L&E Earth Focus 2030™
L&E Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance
To better align with and help our customers achieve their sustainability goals, in 2020 L&E launched L&E Earth Focus 2030™. The program goals and functions involve the tracking, recording and implementation of process improvements associated with better packaging sustainability. Specifically our factory's goals will be the reduction of CO2 emissions by 50% by 2030. To reach this aggressive target, a large part of this program involves the increased use of renewable energy.
Through better, more sustainable packaging, a large part of what we're doing is helping our clients reach their sustainability targets.

We will prioritize and use packaging materials, including pulp and paper, supplied by companies that align with our 2030 sustainability goals.
It’s not just about cost. Producing locally shortens the supply-chain and reduces our carbon footprint. It also increases our speed to market– a nice benefit.
We’re working hard to help our clients achieve their goals by utilizing more recycled materials in our packaging.
