Our Commitment

Owens Corning understands the importance of operating in ways that meet the needs of the present without compromising the world we leave to the future.

Sustainability is at the heart of our company’s stated purpose – Delivering Solutions, Transforming Markets and Enhancing Lives. We are committed to operating with three balanced outcomes: economic growth, environmental stewardship and social progress.

In keeping with that commitment Owens Corning has compiled a Sustainability Report, which you can download at left. This report examines sustainability at Owens Corning from three perspectives:

  • Products

    The value they deliver to the marketplace and to our planet

  • Processes

    The progress being made to improve them

  • People

    Their commitment to, and impact on, sustainability

We draw strength from the fact our company makes a significant net positive impact on the environment. As one example, in their first year alone, the insulation products produced by Owens Corning save approximately nine times the amount of energy annually used by our corporation. And our insulation products continue to help conserve energy year after year without consuming any additional resources.

Owens Corning is a global company where market-leading businesses are built. As we grow so will our positive impact on the world.

We also recognize the impact that our manufacturing facilities have with the processing of raw materials, consumption of resources and emissions. We have identified a baseline and set goals to reduce our footprint.
