Sustainability by Leyton
Our CSR commitments
Since its founding in 1997, the Leyton Group has been committed to sustainable development by initiating or supporting projects dedicated to solidarity and the protection of the environment.
In 2018, the group decided to coordinate all the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) actions carried out in its various subsidiaries by providing a common framework. Through the Sustainability by Leyton program, the group consistently uses its expertise in innovation, energy and improved financial margins, as well as the strength of its international network and the strong commitment of its employees. Leyton supports the association The SeaCleaners, founded by Yvan Bourgnon and dedicated to the fight against ocean pollution.
Leyton is committed to the fight against exclusion and poverty and supports the Agence du Don en Nature, which takes care of the collection of new unsold products from industrialists and redistributes them to the charity partners who give them to the poorest.
Sustainable development at the heart of performance
A Class40 minimal carbon footprint studied by Leyton
The goal? Make sure to navigate while minimising our carbon footprint. This is the ambition that Arthur and Leyton have set themselves to lead this adventure towards success, while respecting the environment. This action is reflected internally in particular by the involvement of experts from the Energy Department. Energy optimisation and the choice of on-board instruments are studied within Leyton. Our common objective is to go further in reducing the environmental impact of the sailboat by offsetting the CO2 emitted during its construction. These actions will be undertaken in accordance with the principal of being led by the research team in Leyton's Energy Department.
