In mid December, Malarkey Roofing Products announced that they are GreenCircle Certified. GreenCircle provides third-party certification of sustainability claims through a rigorous scientific evaluation based on internationally recognized standards and guidelines. All three of the Malarkey asphalt roofing facilities achieved the Waste Diversion from Landfill certification, demonstrating responsible management of end-of-life materials. In the GreenCircle certification process, diversion and reduction can be achieved through a combination of approved methods. Malarkey utilized the methods of source reduction, recycling, energy recovery, and reuse of materials to achieve waste diversion from landfill thresholds. All three of their facilities received a 90% or above and the Portland Facility scored the best out of the 3, achieving a 94% waste diversion rate.
“Through a combination of innovative ideas, employee engagement, and a commitment to the environment, Malarkey has successfully made a huge reduction in its impact.” said Certification and Operations Manager at GreenCircle Certified, LLC, Anne Bevan.
Safety and Sustainability
“Malarkey has promoted sustainability internally for years with initiatives like our renewable energy usage in Portland and recycling programs across all of our facilities,” said Malarkey President Jim Fagan. “Sustainability is a vital aspect of our commitment to our customers and local communities. It is an asset to have third-party validation that shows how we are doing and where we can continue to improve.” In addition to promoting sustainability, Malarkey continues to promote safety throughout their facilities. According to President Jim Fagan, Malarkey has taken great strides in both environmental and safety standards, with plans to pursue additional environmental certifications in the future.What a way to kick off their 60th year of defining roofing excellence!
