CertainTeed plant noted for sustainability

A CertainTeed roofing plant in Shreveport, La., recently strengthened the sustainability of its operations and achieved the globally recognized ISO 14001 certification. 

Developed by the International Organization for Standardization, ISO 14001 standards were created to help companies minimize their environmental impact and achieve continual improvement of its environmental performance. To secure the globally recognized certification, Valley Forge, Pa.-based CertainTeed developed a formalized environmental management system that underwent rigorous, third party evaluation.  

“ISO 14001 instills a culture of environmental responsibility and continuous improvement that maximizes the sustainability of our operations,” said Tom Smith, president of CertainTeed Roofing. “The Shreveport plant certification shows a superlative team effort and validates CertainTeed’s position as a leader in the development of sustainable building products that are manufactured with respect for the environment.”
