Corporate sustainability reports

Careful Product selection

Each decision made in the selection and use of raw materials in USG products is based on careful consideration of their environmental effects over time. The aim is to minimize—or eliminate altogether—the possibility of a negative impact on our present and future environment.

The process is intensive and continuous, but it results in the design and production of building components that meet our sustainability criteria: durability, life and product safety and reducing long-term environmental impact.
