The House of LR&C | Our Impact

OUR IMPACT
ON THE PLANET

OUR SUSTAINABILITY PHILOSOPHY

Every decision we make is informed by the needs of our planet. We have big goals but also recognize that we are just starting on our path. We are fortunate as a new concept to be able to build sustainability into every decision from the beginning. 


We’re committed to achieving our goals and invite you to learn about them. Sustainability is a continuous effort, check back often to see how we’re evolving to be the best we can be. For us, the sustainability journey is all about the direction of travel - always looking ahead, always moving forward.
