Environmental Responsibility

As advocates of preserving the environment, we at LP have policies in place to protect and rebuild natural resources.

Protecting the environment is important to everyone on the LP team, including our suppliers. Our products are made from wood, a renewable natural resource. Our forest management and fiber sourcing programs are certified to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® forest management and fiber sourcing standards.

We invest in reforestation and help landowners manage the thousands of acres of lands and operations that produce our wood supply to maintain wildlife habitat, water quality and soil conservation.  

Our manufacturing facilities all use comprehensive environmental management systems to minimize waste as well as promote air and water quality.

We have also developed a set of leading indicators to measure and report on our environmental performance throughout the organization. These indicators are specifically designed to engage our employees in helping us identify and mitigate areas of environmental risk before incidents can occur. Learn more in our Policy on Protection of the Environment.
