Mission, Vision and Values

At LP our mission, vision, values and leadership behaviors all ladder up to our company purpose: Building a Better World. From our sustainable forestry and manufacturing practices and our approach to protect the health and safety of our people to our products, we work to ensure our company contributes to better building and, therefore, a better world for all of us.


We’re not simply a building solutions company. We have a bigger purpose—using our expertise and innovation to contribute to a better world. Building a Better World is why we engineer products that make a difference, help our people get involved in their communities, and ensure our processes remain sustainable for the environment.


Our vision is to be the leading building solutions company. We want to contribute the most innovative solutions to building professionals in the field who bring homes and structures to life every day. That means we won’t settle for being one of the many—we want to lead with authority in the building products industry.


LP’s mission is to provide an innovative and sustainable portfolio of high-quality products that help customers build beautiful, durable homes and structures while our shareholders build lasting value.


LP is guided by a simple statement: “Do the right thing always.” This phrase represents our value system, which includes:

  • Trust in each other
  • Respect for each other, from roles and accountability to decision rights
  • Urgency in decision-making and actions
  • Transparency in goals, priorities and performance
  • Honesty in active dialogue instead of silent dissent

Leadership Behaviors

LP’s high-performance culture encourages employees to “Think and Act Like Owners” to maximize value and deliver results through empowerment and accountability. The following eight leadership behaviors guide us:

Be Safe
Safety is central to everything we do. It starts in your mind and is evident in your actions. Protect yourself and one another. Be careful and purposeful to ensure no one gets injured while working at LP.

Insist on Excellence
Our customers have a choice, so never settle for second best. Aim higher, expect more, and demand better. Take pride in your work and raise the bar every day.

Innovate & Simplify
Progress is necessary and welcome. Dare to ask “Why?” and challenge the status quo. Think big, seek new ideas, and remove unnecessary complexities. Solve problems for the organization, not only for yourself.

Join Forces
We are stronger as a team than as individuals. Collaborate effectively, encourage different perspectives, and trust in one another because together we will achieve more. Success requires all of us.

Be Curious
Learn every day and help others grow. Seek honest feedback and offer constructive guidance. When you stop improving, you stop excelling.

Embrace Differences
Champion diversity. Take time to listen and understand. Welcome everyone with fairness, mutual respect and equal treatment. Similarities connect us, but differences strengthen us.

Lean In, Speak Up
Ask hard questions and engage in respectful debate. Speak candidly, listen closely, and commit wholly when a decision is made. Voice concerns and recognize others for a job well done.

Have a Bias for Action
Go-getters make things happen. Act with a sense of urgency and use good judgment, instinct and expertise to take calculated risks. Own your decisions and deliver results.
