Corporate buzzwords aside, Lapine takes the notion of responsible practices very seriously. It’s not something we do to merely conform – it’s company-wide policy, it’s part of our culture. The standards we set for ourselves, our suppliers and our partners are sky high because responsibility at every level is simply the right thing to do. By no small coincidence, it’s also good for business – yours and ours.
An inclusive environment for all. From minority and women-owned businesses (MWBE) to small businesses, veteran-owned businesses and more, from Day One Lapine has been committed to working with a diverse set of manufacturers and suppliers to deliver the very best products and services available.
Lapine sources and produces products with companies that care about their employees, product safety, environmental footprint and doing the right thing. It’s why we arrange third-party factory inspections to evaluate quality and safety standards, coordinate product safety testing and obtain certifications, and evaluate suppliers’ working conditions and employment practices.
As part of our Responsibility commitment, Lapine is also accountable for Quality at every turn. From our global sourcing operations to our Distribution & Fulfillment services, we proudly provide solutions that adhere to the strictest social, environmental and safety standards.
and standards like ASTM, ANSI, UL, ETL, FDA and CSA. Even at the warehouse level, one out of every four packages per batch is checked and compared to an approved sample.
Keeping a strong tie to our local roots is at the very heart of Lapine. Whether it’s donating time and supplies to neighborhood charities or helping other businesses in the area thrive, we support our community and are proud to give back. It’s for that reason we helped to found the Mark Lapine Endowment for Families in Business.
From our buildings to our packaging and products, Lapine is dedicated to following sustainable business practices that protect our community and planet, all while delivering against the bottom line. From the basics of recycling and reusing, to the wisdom of buying energy-efficient equipment, using a paperless billing system, and supporting local initiatives. Even our warehouse facility is certified by the Green Business Bureau for its energy conservation and waste reduction.
