Owens Corning Announces Significant Sustainability Goals

The Announcement

In an effort to reduce the company’s environmental impact, the Toledo, Ohio branch of Owen’s Corning, has announced new renewable power initiatives and sustainability goals to decrease greenhouse gas and toxic air emissions.

Owens Corning“Owens Corning has a history of promoting energy efficiency through our products, our suppliers and our operations,” said Chairman and CEO Mike Thaman. “Today’s announcements reflect a continuation of our company’s history of being a good steward of the environment.

In 2002, Owens Corning established a set of 10-year goals to reduce their environmental footprint. By the end of 2010, that footprint was significantly reduced, so in October 2015, Owens Corning announced that they have established new 2020 sustainability goals to reduce greenhouse gas intensity by 50% from its 2010 baseline and reduce toxic air emissions intensity by 75% from its 2010 baseline.

“Our new sustainability goals are ambitious and impactful. Importantly, they are made more achievable by these large scale renewable energy actions and by partnering with leading providers of solar photovoltaic systems to continue our leadership in this area,” said Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer Frank O’Brien-Bernini.

An Environmental Leader in Our Community!

Certified Green Roofer

Chase Construction NW, Inc. is proud to be Certified Green Roofers since 2011We are proud to announce that Chase Construction NW, Inc. is continuing the tradition of green roofing. Partnering with North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, GAF, we have renewed our status as a Certified Green Roofer. We know that keeping up with all the latest trend in the industry is important, but we also believe that going green isn’t just a trend, but a principle to live by. That is why we put so much effort to keeping up on the latest Green Roofing Certifications. As a thriving member of the community, we hope that by taking extra steps to taking care of our environment, we can influence others in our industry to further their interest in this ever important subject as well.

Fact: Every Year, 11 million tons of shingle waste are generated!

Asphalt Shingles to be recycledThat is why we are partnering with GAF, who supports a program that helps us recycle our asphalt shingles! Did you know that our roadways are paved with recycled asphalt shingles? Asphalt is America’s most recycled material! When we tear off your old asphalt roof, our amazing crew carefully separates the asphalt shingles from the other roof waist. We are then able to take them to a recycling center where they will be converted to material used top pave our roads. The nails also get recycled! We don’t expect our roofers to be able to separate every single nail from the shingles, but that was already thought of. A magnet at the processing plant will do that for us, and recycle the nails separately.

Presenting Energy-Saving Green Roofing Solutions

Our friends at GAF have made green roofing easier with their Energy-Saving roofing components. The shingle manufacturing process at GAF generates minimal scrap waste Certified Green Rooferwhich gets recycled, leaving no waist! No one has more environmentally friendly roofing options than GAF!

Asphalt Roofing System:

  • Don’t just think of windows and insulation when it comes to energy savings, your roof can save energy too!
  • Moisture build up when left uncontrolled can increase your energy costs, so it is important that your roof system can breath, exhaling that stale internal air.
  • Your greatest asset in going green can be your asphalt shingle roofing system. It has a long service life, recycled material, readiness for solar panels, and low requirements for ongoing maintenance and recycle-ability.

 

GAF Advanced Protection Shingles. All of GAF shingles feature this unique technology!

  • Provides superior durability and wind resistance, while reducing the use of scarce natural recourses.
  • Visit gaf.com/aps to learn how this technology is helping the environment.

 

Chase Construction Strives For “Green” OperationsReflective Shingles. Designed to reflect sunlight and reduce unwanted attic heat, Timberline® Cool Series Shingles are the most environmentally friendly shingles.

  • Keeps your cooling costs lower in Summer, up to 7-15% depending on your geological location.
  • Rebate and incentive programs may exist to switch to a reflective shingle. (contact your utility, governmental unit, or tax advisor for more information).

 

 

Roof Deck Protection

  • Provides exceptional protection against wind-driven rain (that can soak your insulation and reduce it’s energy efficiency).
  • GAF’s Deck-Armor™, unlike other brands, allows your roof system to breath, prolonging the life of your roof deck.
  • GAF’s Tiger Paw™ Roof Deck Protection “wicks” and releases water that can accumulate inside your attic.

  • By moving hot air out of your attic before it builds up. they an help reduce the load on your AC system in the summer.
  • It also helps prevent roof decay by reducing the amount of moisture in your attic.
