Leviton Achieves PAS 510:2021 Verification

BOTHELL, Wash. — Leviton has announced that its manufacturing facility in Glenrothes, Scotland, has achieved PAS 510:2021 verification. This means the facility successfully met the requirements for the handling and management of “plastic pellets,” preventing harmful leakage into the environment throughout the supply chain.

Plastic pellets, flakes, and powders (collectively known as “plastic pellets”) pose a significant threat to the environment, with thousands of tonnes spilling into the natural world every year. Once there, the pellets wreak havoc on local wildlife, resulting in starvation, organ damage, and even death if ingested. Plastic pellets are also attractors of harmful chemicals, carrying severe toxins across our oceans and into the food chain. These significant problems are only worsened by today’s unsustainable levels of plastic production.

At Leviton, we stand against this pollution and firmly believe that we as manufacturers must hold ourselves responsible and accountable to eradicate these pollutants.

“Sustainability practices are paramount to us at Leviton,” said Managing Director, Ian Wilkie. “Our customers can rest assured that their network solutions supplier is responsibly containing their plastic pellets and keeping them out of the natural environment.”

The verification is yet another step on Leviton’s established commitment to sustainable practice. In 2011, this Glenrothes facility and the entire organization set the standard by becoming the first data communications manufacturer in Europe to achieve carbon neutrality. In 2022, Leviton took this further by rolling out CN2030, a corporate sustainability program to reach carbon neutrality across all Leviton global business operations by 2030.
