Sustainability Through Innovation
Tuesday, June 15 at 2:00 PM ET

Sustainability and conservation must begin at manufacturing facilities. By reducing waste and maximizing productivity we can keep materials out of landfills and maximize the utilization of resources. When most building materials, including roofing that typically has a long life cycle, reach the end of their useful life, the amount of material can be large.

At this TechTalk Tuesday, you will learn how to focus efforts around new product development and the introduction of new programs for improving the sustainability of building materials.


• Identify products that minimize environmental harm or impact
• Recognize aspects of recycling that make sure waste from product packaging is recycled
• Become comfortable with choosing products that reduce VOCs and maintain performance
• Utilize roof color to your advantage whether you are trying to reduce heating costs in heating dominated climates or trying to reduce air conditioning costs in cooling dominated climates
