Designing for
The
Environment

Opportunities

  • Developing innovative sustainable design solutions while delivering outstanding customer- and brand- focused products
  • Developing materials that involve a less resource-intensive manufacturing process and do not result in waste at end of life
  • Educating employees, supply chain partners and stakeholders about the benefits of sustainable materials and processes
  • Creating end markets for byproducts and other discarded materials that would otherwise go to landfill
  • Adopting construction and manufacturing processes that minimize resource consumption

Challenges

  • Using tools and methodologies to measure environmental impacts of our materials and products
  • Developing common ways to better define sustainable materials on an industrywide basis
  • Identifying markets for end-of-life materials in fluctuating global commodities markets
  • Minimizing operations water sent off-site by maximizing stormwater use on-site
