CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES
SUSTAINABILITY BY LEYTON
Since its creation in 1997, the Leyton Group has been committed to sustainable development by initiating and supporting several projects dedicated to solidarity and to 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. The aim is to create synergies between the various initiatives, optimise results and monitor the impact of the actions through a global dashboard of performance indicators.
Through the Sustainability by Leyton program, the group consistently uses its expertise in innovation, energy and improving financial margins, as well as the strength of its international network and the continued strong commitment of its employees.
In February 2018, Leyton became the main sponsor of the skipper Arthur Le Vaillant. The partnership extends over two years and aims to lead Arthur towards two major regattas, the 2018 Route du Rhum and the 2019 Transat Jacques Vabre. The goal is to sail while minimising our carbon footprint as a result of technical studies carry out by Leyton’s Energy Department.
Leyton supports the renowned association The SeaCleaners, founded by Yvan Bourgnon and dedicated to the fight against ocean pollution. The association has launched the construction of a hybrid-powered vessel, Manta, able of collecting large quantities of solid plastic waste floating on the oceans. Manta's electric motors are powered by a combination of renewable energy technologies combined with an optimised energy storage system.
