Diversity and Inclusion

Fostering greater diversity in our global workplace

Owens Corning's success is driven by our ability to attract, engage and retain the most talented and high-performing employees. We provide an environment where the most outstanding talent in the world feels welcomed, respected and valued for who they are and their contributions.

Human Rights

Owens Corning has been a signatory to the UN Global Compact since 2010. The UN Global Compact is a strategic and voluntary policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption.

The elements of our Supplier Code of Conduct and Employee Code of Conduct reflect these principles, however, in 2015 we saw the need to be even more explicit on human rights as separate and distinct policy.

In 2016, we are continuing to consolidate and amend our Human Rights policy to fully embrace the many factors that constitute our actions and ability to positively influence human rights conditions in our world. This will include benchmarking best in class companies and creating a framework for action.
