Owens Corning aspires to be a net positive company through strategic collaborations, intentional decision making, and effective corporate guidance.
Compliance at Owens Corning means that we follow our Ten Guiding Principles all of the time, with no exceptions.
Owens Corning aspires to be a net positive company. We recognize that it is not merely sufficient to reduce our footprint on the planet, but must also expand our handprint, or positive impact, through our strategies and actions.
In late 2013, Owens Corning commenced work with a consulting group to develop a materiality matrix which identifies the most relevant issues for the company and its stakeholders. The new materiality matrix was developed with the input of over 80 internal and external stakeholders.
In 2002, we established our first set of 10-year goals to reduce our environmental footprint. By the end of 2010, we had made significant progress toward those goals, and we established a new set for 2020. These new goals raised the bar on our commitment to sustainability and reflect an increasingly holistic approach that encompasses our environmental footprint, the attributes of our products, and our desire to affect change by partnering with our customers and suppliers to deliver sustainable solutions.
Our approach to the 17 SDG’s is a stepwise one where we are identifying how we might 1) have direct impact, 2) have direct influence or 3) have indirect influence.
Our approach ensures that we operate in accordance with the highest ethical standards, our charter documents, all applicable laws, and stakeholder interests.
Owens Corning is committed to forthright sharing of all relevant information of interest to our stakeholders as this is at the center of our commitment to transparency.
Owens Corning is committed to the principles of environmental sustainability, product stewardship and to the safety and health of our employees.
A company’s reputation is everything. Owens Corning has a reputation not only for quality products and services, but for conducting business ethically and in compliance with all laws and regulations. This is why our Corporate Governance and our Code of Business Conduct are so important.
