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 2019 was as follows:

Water use: 46,336,543

Gallons
LZB Branded Manufacturing 32,284,282
LZB Distribution Centers 1,058,944
LZB Retail 10,688,316
LZB Casegoods 923,110
LZB World HQ 1,381,891

Wastewater treated off-site: 30,460,424

Our water conservation efforts have reduced the amount of water used by our LZB Branded Manufacturing operations by nearly 22,500,000 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.
