Division 7 Ebook Page 374 Sustainability Overview

Section Overview Sustainability Building Material Systems FOAMULAR XPS insulation is also third party certified to contain a minimum 20 percent recycled polystyrene content and is produced with a zero ozone depletion blowing agent formulation. All Fiberglas and FOAMULAR insulation products contribute to achieving credits in multiple LEED categories including energy efficiency and recycled material content. Every pound of glass fiber thermal insulation annually saves 12 times more energy than was originally used to produce it. FOAMULAR XPS insulation products carry a lifetime limited warranty 2 on all physical properties for true long lasting value. Owens Corning offers several color choices of steep slope shingle roofing products which are ENERGY STAR rated for their ability to reflect solar energy and keep roofs cooler. In addition, Owens Corning has collaborated with companies such as Heritage Environmental to initiate an end-of-life shingle recycling program across the country. Owens Corning offers Trumbull asphalt products which are specially formulated to reduce fumes on the job-site, and control vapor and emissions during manufacturing. Trumbull has developed products and procedures for use in asphalt cutback operations that reduce emissions by as much as 85 percent. Delivering Energy Solutions Owens Corning's global operations are developing solutions to seal, insulate and protect virtually any building envelope for improved energy efficiency. These are particularly meaningful pursuits as approximately 40 percent of global energy consumption and associated greenhouse gas emissions emanate from the world's homes and buildings. We made improvements to our Toledo, Ohio world headquarters in 2010 prior to earning the U.S. Green Building Council's prestigious LEED- EB gold certification and advancing from the silver certification awarded in 2007. This is the second Owens Corning facility to earn the LEED gold certification. We are proud of our progress and most importantly, what this progress means to the customers who use our products. Our commitment to progress never stops. Owens Corning thanks you for specifying the use of our products that can make a substantial impact in effectively advancing economic growth along with social progress and environmental stewardship.
