Water

We are constantly looking for ways to conserve water throughout our operations. The amount of water we used on-site and the wastewater treated off-site as a result of our utility monitored operations for Fiscal 2018 was as follows:

Water use: 44,630,716

Gallons
LZB Branded Manufacturing 30,741,354
LZB Distribution Centers 884,928
LZB Retail 11,329,835
LZB Casegoods 514,140
LZB World HQ 1,160,460

Wastewater treated off-site: 30,427,359

Our water conservation efforts have reduced the amount of water used by our LZB Branded Manufacturing operations by nearly 35,000,000 gallons compared with 2007 usage.

Land, forests, and biodiversity

We have sourcing policies and processes in place to help us ensure we comply with the legal sourcing requirements of the Lacey Act and eliminate illegal logging activities. We obtain many of our wood materials and components from suppliers that have implemented sustainable forest management practices or from sustainable plantation-grown renewable rubber-wood. We also use many other wood- and fiber-based materials made with recycled or recovered paper.
