Owens Corning focuses on six key aspects of its footprint reduction strategy. This includes primary energy, greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions, fine particulate matter emissions, toxic air emissions, waste-to-landfill and water.
The company uses more than 1 billion pounds of curbside consumer containers and pre-consumer recycled glass yearly. Its North American, SCS Global-certified residential fiberglass insulation has around 55 percent recycled content, while its commercial and industrial fiberglass insulation contains a minimum of 53 percent recycled content.
In addition, Owens Corning also recycles shingles. This reduces the roofing waste the end in landfills by repurposing them as pavement. Every year, around 10 million tons of recyclable shingles are torn off from roofs.
