Environmental stewardship

Resource management

Our manufacturing companies adhere to environmental standards at every stage of production to eliminate waste, conserve water and reduce energy use. National Gypsum Company and our family of affiliate companies track resource management because we believe in holding ourselves accountable for our impact on the world around us.


Responsibly designed. Efficiently manufactured.

We are committed to delivering on our sustainability goals — and yours. We take a data-driven approach to sustainability with an ambition to achieve carbon neutral GHG emissions by 2050. It’s how we hold ourselves accountable for building better futures.

Building green

We offer the industry’s leading selection of value-added products to help meet your most demanding performance, durability, and service requirements. Building green starts with cutting-edge research and development at our Technology Innovation Center (TIC) in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Visit our Design & Resource Center to learn how our products perform on indoor air quality and rating systems including LEED, WELL, and Living Building Challenge (LBC). Find our Health Product Declarations (HPD), Environmental Product Declarations (EPD), and UL GREENGUARD Certifications to specify innovative products with the future in mind.

Closing the loop on waste

Our manufacturers are constantly developing innovative ways to eliminate and recycle waste. Gold Bond Building Products has reclaimed 824,000 tons of rock since 2019, diverting landfill-bound material into beneficial reuse or back into wallboard production.

Gold Bond paper plants are sourced from 100% post-consumer waste. The paper plant in Milton, PA takes cardboard waste directly from Weiss grocery markets eliminating transit through 3rd parties for 140,000 tons of cardboard.

Carbon neutral by 2050

Through dedicated in-house research, development, and testing, our experts are discovering new ways to reduce our energy use, water consumption, and waste. Our ambition is to reach carbon neutral greenhouse emissions by 2050. The path involves a mix of efficiency projects, technological innovation, and renewable energy. We are committed to sharing our progress going forward as we embark on the journey to carbon neutral.
