Going Beyond The BuildingsClimate change is currently the most significant risk facing our world today. As we have committed to our customers’ energy efficiency through our services, we are also committed to reducing our own greenhouse gas emissions.
Energy EfficiencyOur customers are creating homes in the houses we build with them, and that includes keeping their families safe and comfortable while saving energy. We provide reliable insulation resulting in energy efficient homes that homeowners can be proud of.
Responsible MaterialsResponsible material usage is something we consider in every insulation job. The most common type of insulation we install – over 80% of our insulation sales – is fiberglass, which is comprised of an average of 50% recycled material, with some up to 80% recycled material. We also install cellulose insulation, which is comprised of at least 75% recycled waste paper.
Reducing our Carbon FootprintAs a national corporation, there is always work to be done in reducing our carbon footprint. Our products directly reduce carbon emissions through energy efficiency. As we look to the future, we are committed to impactful environmental and sustainability initiatives. These initiatives are outlined in our current ESG report.
Elevating Our Neighborhoods
A great point of pride at IBP is the sheer number of communities that we can serve through our more than 240 locations across the U.S. We focus our impact in supporting education, housing and community-strengthening causes.
We are proud to foster strong partnerships with people and organizations who are doing great work in our neighborhoods. And we are grateful for and proud of our employees who choose to donate their time, talent and treasure to the nonprofit organizations they are passionate about.
We know that quality and equitable educational opportunities are the foundation for a bright future. And by focusing on our employees, their families and community organizations innovating in the world of equitable education, we hope to do our part in building that future.
Our employees and their family members are eligible to apply for a $5000 renewable scholarship to support their higher education goals, whether that be college, a vocational program or a trade school. And our partnerships with nonprofits working in education range from funding college 529 plans at an early childhood learning center to investing in tuition programs at local community colleges.
Building safe and comfortable homes is our passion because we know that accessible housing is the bedrock of a thriving community. We are proud to support nonprofit organizations dedicated to building or renovating homes or providing shelter for those in need in communities throughout the U.S. Each organization that our company supports is contributing to housing initiatives in ways unique to their expertise and the needs of their community.
We take great pride in the communities we call home. Our branches serve communities nationwide and it is imperative that we do our part to give back and make a lasting impact on those who need it most in a way that best helps our neighborhoods flourish. In addition to offering planned volunteer opportunities for our employees, we have a program that matches an employee’s nonprofit donations; and through our Dollars for Doers program, employees can volunteer with their favorite nonprofit, earning donations to match their time.
