As leaders, we must take into consideration the long-term impact of our business on the health of our planet.
Establish a material take back program for recycled asphalt shingles with the goal of diverting 1 million additional tons of roofing materials from landfill annually by 2030, and establish a circular roofing economy.
Operational Waste Diversion
Achieve 80% waste diversion rates across all manufacturing plants. Recycle 100% of PMW TPO or shingle scrap, and retain, recycle, or reuse mat scrap and cores.
CARBON EMISSIONS REDUCTION
Reduce our operational carbon emissions by improving energy efficiency, introducing renewable energy sources and exploring and/or innovating new technologies to remove carbon from the environment.
Green Portfolio Expansion
Conduct Life Cycle Assessments all core GAF products, and drive product expansion in solar and non-asphaltic roofing products.
Progress means taking action for a better world.
We use our resources wisely, leveraging our network of partners, and pushing innovation to accelerate action.
Solar roof energy
GAF Energy envisions “Energy from every roof™” and is making that vision a reality with Timberline Solar™, the first nailable solar roofing system, It’s a roof, with energy. It’s that simple.
We recycle, regrind and reuse post-manufacture TPO waste, and hold GreenCircle recycled content certifications for select GAF EnergyGuard™ products. Many GAF manufacturing plants achieved third-party certification for their waste diversion rates, helping protect our communities.
Understanding a product’s life cycle
GAF strives to reduce environmental impact while maximizing product performance. We conduct life cycle assessments (LCAs) on our products to understand their impact, resulting in several Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). EPDs allow products to contribute to green building rating systems.
