Owens Corning recently announced that, for the fifth consecutive year, it has received placement in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World). In addition, for the second straight year, Owens Corning has been named the Industry Leader for the DJSI World Building Products group.

“We are proud to have earned a place on this list again this year,” said Mike Thaman, chairman and CEO. “Our employees are working every day to make homes more energy efficient, roofs more durable and weather-resistant, cars more fuel efficient, and renewable energy more cost effective. Our sustainability strategy is realized every day at Owens Corning, through the products we produce and the way we produce them.”

“In addition to our continued work to dramatically reduce our environmental footprint, what has our company most excited about sustainability right now is our work toward understanding, measuring and expanding our handprint—striving to achieve a net-positive impact of our company and its products,” said Frank O'Brien-Bernini, chief sustainability officer.
