Climate Change

Livingstone recognises the importance of reducing our carbon footprint in all aspects of business, from our offices to our dispatch facilities and with our suppliers and factories.

By reducing our carbon footprint this mitigates the effects of global climate change and improves public health, boosts the global economy and maintains biodiversity.

We have introduced environmentally friendly packaging and expanding new eco-friendly product ranges. We have begun to implement this through our supply chain, consolidating our orders to minimise gas emissions.

In our offices and warehouse facilities we have introduced energy efficient lighting, fuel efficient vehicles and recycling programs. Our warehouses are now undergoing paperless orders. We will continue to improve our business practices to have a carbon neutral footprint in the coming years.

Watch this short video on how we will achieve our Carbon Neutral Sustainability Initiative by the beginning of 2024.
