At Johns Manville, it is our goal to meet the needs of current stakeholders without sacrificing the needs of future generations. We publish an annual sustainability report as a way to share our goals and progress with our key stakeholders—customers, suppliers, employees and the communities where we have a presence. As a manufacturing company, we strive to minimize the adverse impacts of the materials we use, the products we manufacture and the processes we use to produce them. In fact, a significant number of our sustainability goals are focused on reducing our environmental footprint while making a positive contribution to society.
A great example is in our fiber glass manufacturing process. We incorporate an average of 25 percent recycled content across North America. That content (as certified by Scientific Certification Systems) includes an average of 20 percent post-consumer, with the balance consisting of post-industrial recycled glass. All that adds up to tens of thousands of tons of recycled content in JM fiber glass insulation each year.
