Sustainable Communities

Holistic and scalable solutions for reducing energy needs and carbon footprints

At Owens Corning, we recognize that creating a sustainable built environment can happen project by project, building by building. However, to make a large scale impact and address energy and climate change risks, holistic solutions for entire communities also need to be part of the equation. As a result, Owens Corning has made a commitment to work with communities large and small to reduce energy use up to 50% and greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80%, as compared to business as usual.

Our work is focused on:

  • All aspects of efficient energy use throughout the community, from homes and buildings, to the supply of energy
  • Providing integrated solutions that address peak loads and reduce energy waste
  • Global best practices of proven solutions that meet both project financial and performance goals

To fulfill this commitment, Owens Corning has established an alliance with two leading global energy and building science firms. Working with us are MVV decon GmbH, an international consulting subsidiary of Mannheim Germany-based MVV Energiedienstleistungen GmbH, and Garforth International LLC, based in Toledo and Brussels, Belgium. This trio of building science and energy thought-leaders delivers international experience and local expertise that creates energy master plans for a variety of communities.
