Building a Safer Tomorrow

The safety of our communities begins with the natural environment in which we all live. Climate change and the overuse of our natural resources threaten to expose our communities and planet to damage from extreme temperatures, weather, flooding and resource scarcity. To ensure future generations have the resources to safely live, work and play, we commit to reducing our environmental footprint and taking actions to mitigate climate change.

Managing Climate Change and Energy


Climate change directly impacts our business, communities, stakeholders, partners and customers, and is one of the largest challenges to securing our future. To do our part in building a safer tomorrow, we are continuously learning and implementing proven strategies to mitigate our contributions to climate change, including reducing the GHG emissions and energy intensity of our operations.

Reducing Waste, Water and Land Use

Building a safer tomorrow requires careful stewardship of resources today. We continue to comply with applicable environmental laws, regulations and other requirements, and are developing programs and strategies to further reduce our environmental impact to help secure a safer tomorrow. These strategies include optimizing our lean manufacturing capabilities to drive efficient, consistent and dependable operations that help us reduce water and material consumption. We employ waste diversion to reuse or recycle non-hazardous materials rather than sending them to landfills. In the case of hazardous waste, we ensure it gets disposed of properly and responsibly.

In 2022, we improved data tracking across the organization using various platforms to better manage waste, water and GHG emissions. With our Cornerstone Building Brands Production System (CPS) in place and a baseline of data established, we are positioned to develop plant-level goals aimed at driving improvements across key environmental metrics.
