Sustainability at LMI
LMI understands the growing recognition that every business needs to be sustainable. We're acutely aware of humans' impacts on the planet, increased pressure from stakeholders to address climate change and other anthropomorphic impacts, and the understanding that the long-term viability of humanity depends on the availability of finite and fragile natural resources. In alignment with the Paris Agreement, we are working to ensure that the world stays well below 2° C and that we stave off the worst impacts of climate change.

In 2023, LMI completed its first GHG inventory of scopes 1, 2, and 3 using the GHG Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard. LMI has also set GHG reduction targets that are aligned with guidance from SBTi. Our targets are to:
- Reduce our scope 1 and 2 emissions 50% from a 2021 baseline by 2030 and achieve net zero by 2050
- Reduce our scope 3 emissions 50% from a 2021 baseline by 2030 and achieve net zero by 2050
LMI is currently reviewing and updating our climate risk vulnerabilities. We aim to have a climate risk assessment soon. Our updated assessment and vulnerabilites are forthcoming.
