VYCOM’s Green Mission
Vycom is a subsidiary of The AZEK Company. As a leading supplier of premium, branded,low maintenance building products, AZEK is widely known for its commitment to bringing value and quality to its customers. At Vycom and throughout all of AZEK, we believe our responsibility is not only to our customers, but also to the environment.As a company, we strive to maintain sustainable business practices and use our resources in a responsible manner. We are focused on achieving sustainability through ongoing improvements that protect our environment, our employees and our business.
Respecting the Environment
Our concern and respect for the environment is evident through our continued effort to introduce and produce sustainable products, products with a life span in excess of 25 years – incomparably longer than the traditional materials they replace, products that ultimately limit VOC emission by requiring little to no maintenance or cleaning with harsh chemicals, and products that are versatile and recyclable at the end of their useful lives.
Reducing Our Environmental Impact
Our commitment to actively reducing the environmental impact of what we produce and consume is an integral part of the value we bring our customers. We go beyond the basics of merely cutting waste and operating efficiently by taking a holistic approach to sustainable development.
Establishing a Leadership Role
The future is dependent upon the commitment we make to sustain our natural environment. To achieve this, Vycom and The AZEK Company are pursuing several green initiatives to positively impact our products, our culture and our world. For example, our corporate family opened the TimberTech Recycling Plant in 2018. In fiscal 2018 The AZEK Company utilized more than 170 million pounds of recycled materials in its deck boards and expects to increase the amount of recycled materials used in its deck boards to over 15% in fiscal 2019.
