Report details LP's resilience and sustainability across its operations and commitment to carbon-negative products

LP Building Solutions (LP), a leading manufacturer of high-performance building products, today released its 2023 Sustainability Report detailing the company's environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance. The company's third annual report details how a focus on resilience has helped LP achieve key impact goals across five pillars: Governance, People, Environment, Products and Community.

"Our history has taught us the vital role sustainable building materials play in long-term resilience." –Brad Southern

"Our history has taught us the vital role sustainable building materials play in long-term resilience," said LP Chair and Chief Executive Officer Brad Southern . "By engineering our products for durability, we enable customers to build more resilient homes. By harvesting responsibly, we help promote forest resilience. By building and developing a more diverse, engaged and highly skilled workforce, we build a more resilient and competitive company."

As the 2023 Sustainability Report details, LP's products and manufacturing processes are inherently sustainable. A powerful example of this is the company's carbon-negative products. In 2023, LP completed five environmental product declarations (EPDs) for its Structural Solutions portfolio. Along with LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding, these EPDs demonstrate the carbon negativity of LP products. For builders and homeowners looking for durable and resilient products that also make a positive impact on the planet, LP believes the choice is clear.

Highlights from LP's 2023 Sustainability Report include the following:

  • Ensured 100% of wood fiber was sourced through stringent forest certification standards
  • Continued to focus on renewable energy, deriving 80% of all thermal energy used in product manufacturing from renewable sources
  • Achieved another year of strong safety performance with a world-class total incident rate below 1.0 since 2007, winning four safety awards, and achieving 1 million recordable-free hours for the sixteenth time across its sites
  • Enhanced workforce diversity and belonging with the introduction of the inclusion training program Building a Better LP
  • Supported communities through the LP Foundation grant program, reaching 130 nonprofits across the U.S. and Canada , and announced a national partnership with the Gary Sinise Foundation's R.I.S.E. program, which builds mortgage-free, specially adapted smart homes for America's most severely wounded veterans using LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding
  • Completed its ambitious plan to open LP Health and Wellness Centers at 11 of its facilities, offering free or low-cost health care exclusively to LP team members and their families
