For the fourth year in a row, Owens Corning has been placed in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) for its sustainability initiatives. This year, Owens Corning was named the Industry Leader for the DJSI World Building Products component. The DJSI World Index is a listing of the world’s largest companies based on long-term economic, environmental and social criteria.

“This is a milestone year on many levels for Owens Corning, including the celebration of today’s news and the year-long celebration of our company’s 75th anniversary,” said Mike Thaman, chairman and CEO. “One of the keys to our success yesterday, today and especially tomorrow, is the energy our people put toward our sustainability strategy.” 

“Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the world that we leave to the future is this company’s unwavering commitment,” said Frank O’Brien-Bernini, chief sustainability officer. “Our people continue to prove that our customers, our communities, our employees and our investors can see significant benefits from that strategy.”
