Our goal: By 2030, we will design our products for recycling or reuse to optimize the impact of our products over their entire life cycle, from raw materials to disposal.
Over the next nine years, Owens Corning expects that the importance of balancing growth with sustainability will become increasingly evident. We will be there to meet the demand for products that deliver performance while minimizing negative impacts. In particular, we recognize the growing demand for reduced embodied carbon, which is already shaping our approach to innovation throughout our operations. Among the other specific areas of focus Owens Corning has prioritized for the immediate future is the need to expand the number of products that are free of formaldehyde and fluorocarbons.
One way Owens Corning gauges our performance toward our sustainable growth goals is the extent to which we are addressing the trends that are shaping our industry. As we look to the future, we are also cognizant of these trends as significant opportunities to grow while at the same time meeting our 2030 sustainability goals.
Currently, we see four primary trends that represent opportunities for sustainable growth over the next decade.
We will capitalize on these opportunities by focusing on our unique combination of material science knowledge, commercial strength, and manufacturing expertise to develop and commercialize additional product and system solutions.
