Our Sustainability Vision

Our Sustainability

Light enables human connection and allows systems to thrive. We aim to emulate the properties of light, as it lies at the core of all our innovations. Our solutions enable a broad range of end user applications across the cloud and networking and industrial tech markets. All are shaping the way people connect, create, and interact.

To create a brighter future, we:

  • Harness the power of light to connect people and keep them safe and secure, while enabling businesses to operate faster and more efficiently
  • Support and develop our people, partners, and communities so that they can shine their brightest
  • Create products and manufacturing processes that improve lives with the lightest impact on the environment


The UN Sustainable Development Goals

Lumentum recognizes the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at its heart. 

We believe these goals will lead our world to the brighter future we envision. We have aligned our reporting with seven of the 17 Goals which we can most deeply impact and that are relevant to our business. See our Corporate Sustainability Report’s SDG Index for more information.

Sustainability Governance

Lumentum's Sustainability Council develops our Sustainability strategy and drives performance. Led by the Sustainability Council Chair and the Executive Sponsor, the team is composed of representatives from all business departments, including Environment, Health, and Safety; Human Resources; Legal; Quality; and Supply Chain, as well as leaders from each business unit. Members serve as representatives of their respective departments and are responsible for determining the relevance of emerging topics, developing associated action plans, and disseminating information related to Sustainability to their teams.

Sustainability Council activities are reported quarterly to the CEO and Board of Directors. The Governance Committee is responsible for oversight of policies and programs that support our Sustainability strategy. The Sustainability Liaison from the Board works closely with the Sustainability Council to guide efforts and provide a continuous feedback loop between recommendations of the Board of Directors and implementation by the Sustainability Council.

Executive compensation is tied to achieving our Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging goals.

Value Chain and Boundaries

Mapping our value chain enables us to better locate, understand, and manage the material topics that we control or influence.

We maintain direct control of our manufacturing operations and the global support services that are essential for our business to thrive. Outside of our direct control, we maintain strong relationships with our suppliers, contract manufacturers and customers. We work closely with suppliers and contract manufacturers to procure materials and products to specifications. Vendor relationships are critical to ensure product quality and promote ethical and responsible sourcing throughout our supply chain. Finally, our products are integrated into larger systems by our customers and delivered to end users, where we aim to influence responsible use and treatment.
