In 2017, we launched SUSTAIN PORTFOLIO featuring our top selling mineral fiber, plant based fiberglass, architectural specialties, suspension systems, and trim products. As part of our commitment to this portfolio, we implemented a material screening step that applies Design for Environment principles to our new product development process. We continue on our journey to add products to this platform to meet the highest level of sustainability standards.
Our SUSTAIN portfolio is listed in the mindful MATERIALS library. mindful MATERIALS is an agnostic product certification library that aggregates product sustainability information while minimizing redundant effort on the part of both manufacturers and designers.
