Thoughtful corporate citizenship
While the benefits of using National Gypsum products are many, we look beyond them to serve the communities where we work and we also share the knowledge we’ve gained over the years to make our industry stronger and more responsive to the needs of gypsum consumers.
Our core values include Honesty, Integrity, Fairness and Respect. Another is Openness and Communication. We practice these values daily with all our constituencies, and I believe they help sustain the company. These values help us build and maintain trust, a staggering and vital aspect of sustainability.
I am proud to say our plant locations and our associates are active in their communities, helping veterans organizations, Habitat for Humanity®, schools, hospitals and myriad other worthy causes. Some of these efforts are highlighted in this report.
We are committed to healthy indoor environments. Our products are GREENGUARD Certified, and we have developed Health Product Declarations (HPD), covering all brands. Our company also shares knowledge within our industry. Our company and its original entity have been members of the Gypsum Association since its founding 88 years ago, and during that time have helped set industry standards in areas such as Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) for gypsum and Life Cycle Assessments (LCA).
