Owens Corning aspires to be a net positive company through strategic collaborations, intentional decision making, and effective corporate guidance.
Expanding our impact through sustainability is a core value and an essential element of our business. Our commitment to sustainability begins with the recognition that the foundation of a sustainable enterprise is built on financial strength, environmental stewardship, great and relevant products, innovative thinking and sustainable talent.
Owens Corning is recognized as a leading global producer of insulation, roofing and fiberglass composites. Through our work and our commitment to a sustainability, our team of 19,000 employees has earned many accolades.
In 2002, we established our first set of 10-year goals to reduce our environmental footprint. By the end of 2010, we had made significant progress toward those goals, and we established a new set for 2020. These new goals raised the bar on our commitment to sustainability and reflect an increasingly holistic approach that encompasses our environmental footprint, the attributes of our products, and our desire to affect change by partnering with our customers and suppliers to deliver sustainable solutions.
An investment in new wind energy capacity helps reduce the company’s environmental footprint.
