Sustainability

Environmental

The installation of insulation materials is not only our primary line of business, but it is also the best way to prevent energy waste in most homes and commercial structures. Since over half the energy used in the average American home is for heating and cooling, and inadequate insulation and air leakage are the leading cause of energy waste in most homes, we truly are in the business of energy efficiency solutions.

We have expanded the services that we can offer our customers over the years, but at our core, we are providing energy-saving solutions. To that end, we are continually looking at new ways to promote sustainability in the products and services we offer, as well as the way in which we conduct our business.

Energy Efficiency

Our customers are creating homes in the houses we build with them, and that includes keeping their families safe and warm while also saving energy. We provide reliable insulation that homeowners can be proud of.

Responsible Materials

Responsible material usage is something we consider in every insulation job. The most common type of insulation we install – over 80% of our sales – is fiberglass, which is comprised of up to 80% recycled material. We also install cellulose insulation, which is comprised of at least 75% recycled waste paper.

Fiberglass Insulation Fiberglass is comprised of 40-80% recycled material
  • Made of fibrous glass held together by a thermoset resin
  • Contains average of 50% recycled content
  • Available as blankets or loosefill
  • Most widely used residential insulation material
  • 83% of IBP insulation sales in 2019
CELLULOSE Insulation Cellulose is comprised of 75-85% recycled waste paper
  • Made of paper and cardboard, has a very high recycled content
  • Only available in loosefill form and is blown into the structure with specialized equipment
  • 2% of IBP insulation installation sales in 2019

Reducing our Carbon Footprint

As a national corporation, there is always work to be done in reducing our carbon footprint. As we look to the future, we are committed to impactful environmental and sustainability initiatives.

Social Responsibility

IBP is committed to building a better tomorrow – today. Our employees and the communities they live and work in are the heart and soul that fuel each branch to provide excellent service every day.

We are also committed to ensure that human dignity is respected and protected through the entire building process. This starts with empowering our employees through our SafetyWanted365 health and safety training program, financial wellness education and community giving channels through our Foundation. As a result, employee turnover is down, morale is up and our dedicated 9,000+ employee base is focused on providing the best customer care in the industry.

IBP Foundation

By employees and for employees, the IBP Foundation offers a scholarship program to help employees and their families pursue their dreams, a financial assistance program to help employees through hard times, and a matching donation program to help amplify the work our employees do for the causes they care about. In the first year of the Foundation’s existence, $1.4 million was donated through these programs. For more information, visit our IBP Foundation page.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

IBP’s strong and diverse workforce is what propels us forward, and we take our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion seriously. We stand against discrimination in any form and are invested in creating environments where all voices are encouraged, heard, and appreciated.

We also believe that supporting DEI is a core skill that all employees should have in their toolbox. Along with providing resources through our Positive Production Program – which focuses on employee wellbeing – employees across all our branches are invited to participate in our Regional DEI Committees, which collaborate with our national DEI Working Group to determine the standards for how employees should interact with one another and their communities.

Ensuring Financial Wellness

Our employees have families and dreams to support, so we created a financial wellness program to encourage responsible personal finance. As a result, 93% of participants now have an emergency fund, and 94% have a debt repayment plan. And through our longevity stock program, employees are rewarded for their contributions to IBP’s financial success.
