At GAF, our promise to Protect What Matters Most includes our people, our communities, and our planet. For us, sustainability is an opportunity to invest in the shared future of our business and our planet. Our efforts are centered around four key areas: product circularity, operational waste diversion, carbon emissions reduction, and product transparency and green portfolio expansion.
Recycled Asphalt ShinglesGAF manufactures the industry’s first asphalt shingles containing recycled material from post-consumer and post-manufacture waste shingles through a patented recycling process.
Material Circularity in Residential & Commercial RoofingGAF aims to reduce waste sent to landfills from our facilities. In addition to our recycled asphalt shingles, we recycle, regrind and reuse post-manufacture TPO waste, and hold GreenCircle recycled content certifications for select GAF EnergyGuard™ products.
Water StewardshipEvery drop of water matters in our operations, so we installed closed-loop process water systems in several plants to reduce our total water usage. GAF’s facilities in Shafter, CA, Mt. Vernon, IN, and Tampa, FL have recently implemented major water conservation projects to reduce total water use.
