Global Climate Change

Climate change

Owens Corning is committed to safeguarding, sustaining and improving the environment, for the benefit of current and future generations.

Recognizing that the scientific understanding continues to be developed regarding the impact of human activity on global climate change, Owens Corning believes that key conclusions have earned widespread support requiring the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) around the world.

Owens Corning is well positioned to help address this issue through the increased energy efficiency gained from the use of many of the products we produce and the reductions in greenhouse gas emissions that occur when consumers use those products. This is an opportunity for Owens Corning to make a measurable difference in global sustainability.
