At Lennox, our commitment to the environment takes many forms. Our recent product introductions have helped protect the Earth's ozone layer while setting new standards for energy efficiency, going well beyond even to most strict standards for high-performance green buildings.
Our dedication to environmental innovation doesn't end with our products. At our manufacturing facilities, we have implemented many projects that reduce hazardous material and energy usage. We recognize that there's always more that can be done, and we continue to look at new ways to lower energy usage and emissions.
For several years, Lennox has offered a complete line of ENERGY STAR® qualified products. In 2007, Lennox was honored for a fourth time as an ENERGY STAR® Manufacturing Partner of the Year by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Department of Energy. Lennox was the first heating, ventilation and air-conditioning manufacturer to receive this prestigious award, which reflects our ongoing commitment to making and selling energy-efficient solutions that save money and help protect the environment.
