The report provides an update on Lippert’s initiatives on environmental, social and governance (ESG) topics, such as strengthening the Company’s internal culture, supporting local communities and reporting on material environmental data.
“In 2022, we made great strides towards bettering the communities we serve. Our commitment to reporting on these critical ESG initiatives has enabled us to meaningfully measure and monitor the progress we are making to improve the lives of our customers and team members,” said Jason Lippert, President and CEO of Lippert. “As an enabler to the outdoor lifestyle for recreation enthusiasts, it is not only good citizenship for us to focus on the actions that will enhance our world for future generations, but it’s also good business. Advancing our culture, while at the same time coming together as a team to make a cleaner, safer, and happier world, remains a key priority for our leadership team. We look forward to continuing to share this journey with our stakeholders.”
Lippert’s second CSR Report presents the Company’s continuing initiatives to elevate team members, as well as monitoring and mitigating the environmental impact of our operations. Some highlights:
- Lippert expanded its greenhouse gas (GHG) data collection footprint from five sites in 2022 to all global sites in 2023.
- Lippert collected, and is disclosing, the entirety of its GHG Scope 1 & Scope 2 emissions.
- Lippert conducted its first materiality assessment to identify and address the sustainability priorities of the Company’s key stakeholders.
- 75% of our team members participated in Lippert Cares volunteer events as part of our 100,000 hours initiative and surpassed that goal by 50,000 hours.
- In addition to reporting in accordance with the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) framework, we reported relevant ESG data with reference to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework for the first time.
- The latest CSR Report includes a breadth of new topics, from product innovation to health and safety and community impacts.
The CSR Report was created with reference to the GRI framework and in alignment with the SASB disclosure framework for the Transportation Sector: Auto Parts industry and the Consumer Goods Sector: Building Products and Furnishings.
