Building Responsibly™, sustainability is part of everything we do.

As a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), CertainTeed Ceilings is a leader in the effort to provide solutions that promote sustainable design.  We incorporate sustainability at every step - from the product’s raw material content to how it’s handled through manufacturing and shipping, as well as through the product life cycle. That means products that incorporate one of the highest concentrations of recyled content in the industry, plants that continually strive to minimize waste and smarter logistics that minimize transportation needs.
