Owens Corning: Reducing Our Environmental Footprint

Article

Frank O’Brien-Bernini

SVP and Chief Sustainability Officer

Our first set of ten-year goals was centered on our commitment to reducing our environmental footprint. Through the years, that has continued to be a critically important pillar of our sustainability journey. When we achieve a goal, we set more challenging goals for ourselves. Our science-based goals for 2030 are based on what we know the world needs us to do, not what we know how to do.
