SUSTAINABILITY 07/10/2020

 

Paroc is part of the Fortune 500 and Dow Jones Sustainability Index company Owens Corning. For us, sustainability is about meeting the needs of the present while leaving the world a better place for the future. We are committed to considering the future in all we do, with a commitment to care for people and the planet while delivering a material difference to all stakeholders.

As a global manufacturer, we know the way we conduct our operations makes a difference. To be a net-positive company, our handprint (the positive impacts of our people and products) must be larger than our footprint (the negative impacts). We’re proud of the progress we’ve made in shrinking the negative impact of our operations, but there’s much more to do.

Our guiding aspirations for 2030 are to

  • Double the positive impact of our PRODUCTS
  • Halve the negative impact of our OPERATIONS
  • Eliminate INJURIES and improve the QUALITY OF LIFE for our employees and their families
  • Advance our INCLUSION AND DIVERSITY
  • Have a positive impact on our COMMUNITIES

What does this mean in practice for Paroc? Our aspiration for 2030 is to

  • Close the loop with ZERO WASTE leaving our plants
  • REDUCE our CO2 emissions by 50%
  • REDUCE our plastic use by 30%
  • Expand the use of REWOOL – our customer waste recycling solution
  • Offer LOW CARBON products
