CertainTeed is actively pursuing strategies to reduce our environmental impact, while increasing the sustainability of our operations and products.
Rigorous Life Cycle Assessment — By carefully examining all environmental impacts throughout each phase of a product’s life cycle—from raw materials and manufacturing, to transportation and use, to disposal and/or recycling—we gain a complete, accurate view of our product’s true sustainability.
Fresh perspective — Life Cycle Assessment findings provide a new, if not surprising, vantage point from which to make more credible and confident decisions on environmentally sound cladding options.
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)
LCA is an analytical tool used to quantify and interpret the flows to-and-from the environment (e.g. emissions, consumption of energy, etc.) over the entire life cycle of a product, process or service. By including the impacts throughout the product life cycle, a LCA provides a comprehensive view of the environmental aspects of the product and an accurate picture of the environmental costs/benefits of product selection.
