Owens Corning Earns Perfect Score on Corporate Equality Index

Owens Corning recently announced it received a perfect score on the 2012 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), which was published by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation, a civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) equality. Owens Corning has achieved a 100% CEI rating every year since 2004.

The 2012 CEI rated 850 companies on a scale of 0-100% relative to 40 specific policies and practices, 32 of which are new or more demanding this year. Owens Corning was one of 190 companies to achieve a perfect CEI score, which also requires companies to have fully inclusive equal employment opportunity policies, provide equal employment benefits, demonstrate organizational LGBT competency and a public commitment to equality, and exercise responsible citizenship.

“Owens Corning is honored to be recognized by the Human Rights Campaign for an eighth consecutive year as one of the best places to work for LGBT equality,” said Frank O’Brien-Bernini, vice president and chief sustainability officer, and executive sponsor of the company’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Advocates (GLBTA) affinity group. “Embracing diversity and inclusion provides a competitive advantage by creating an environment where the most outstanding talent in the world feels welcomed, respected and valued for their contributions. This enables Owens Corning and our customers to take full advantage of the collective experience and perspective that our employees possess.”
