Sustainability

Consistent with our Environmental, Social, and Governance principles, Lightpath considers sustainability as an important component of the Company's long-term mission, development, and growth. Creating a culture of sustainability requires a consistent and responsible focus on decision-making that takes into account the well-being of our internal and external stakeholders, the communities in which we operate, and the environment. Lightpath continues to look for ways in which we can minimize the impacts of our business on natural resources and the environment.

Net-Zero Commitment

Lightpath firmly believes in the shared global responsibility of corporations and individuals to alter the current climate change curve and has adopted a focused investment strategy emphasizing intelligent infrastructure toward achieving net-zero target by 2035.

We are working toward setting science-based targets across the board and we are committed to reaching them by advancing sustainability technologies. Our Net-Zero framework offers a balanced approach in considering both the users of fossil fuels as well as aligning our vendors with Lightpath’s goals. Recognizing the importance of a robust carbon accounting methodology and thoughtful implementation, intermediate targets and updates will be released over the intervening years.
