Lennox received a 2023 Green Builder Sustainable Product of the Year recognition.

"Since 1895, Lennox has operated with a culture focused on the core values of integrity, respect, and excellence," said Alok Maskara, CEO, Lennox. "We are honored to be on two of the nation's top corporate responsibility lists as well as acknowledged for our innovation in sustainable products. To be recognized for the trust our customers and stakeholders have in us is incredibly rewarding, and we will continue to prioritize them at the forefront of everything we do."

This year, Lennox received recognition from Newsweek for its corporate social responsibility and trust and Green Builder for leadership in product sustainability:

  • Newsweek's Most Responsible Companies: Showcases the nation's largest public corporations that continue to invest in corporate responsibility as the importance of environment, social and corporate governance (ESG) rises.
  • Newsweek's America's Most Trustworthy Companies: Reflects the top companies that continue to generate and maintain consumer, employee, and investor trust. 
  • Green Builder's Sustainable Product of the Year: Highlights everyday home appliances that encouraged sustainability through innovative technology focusing on IAQ, environmental control, and energy savings in the manufacturing industry. This year, Lennox' S40 Smart Thermostat is listed as a top sustainable product in the Controls and Sensors category.


Lennox's continued recognition echoes both their core values and long-lasting legacy of providing homeowners with perfect, healthy air. Earlier this year, the S40 Smart Thermostat was selected as a finalist in the "Best Home Technology Product" category at the 2023 International Builders Show, speaking to the product's top-of-line capabilities in providing year-round energy savings and convenient access to IAQ monitoring capabilities. Increased efficiency, made possible by the S40 Smart Thermostat, not only saves money for the homeowner but also translates to lower greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and ultimately a healthier planet.

"At Lennox, sustainability and innovation are at the core of all our products, so we can provide homeowners with the peace of mind that comes with having the most precise and perfect air in their home," said Gary Bedard, president of Lennox’s Residential Heating and Cooling Business.
