More than 130 All Weather Insulated Panels employees participated in cleanups last weekend at each of the company’s three continuous line production plants nationwide to commemorate Earth Day 2023 on April 22.
Employees took part in cleaning up the property and surrounding areas at each of AWIP’s three plants in Vacaville, Calif., Little Rock, Ark. and East Stroudsburg, Pa., according to a company news release. The effort was part of the organization’s larger Planet Passionate initiative, a 10-year sustainability program seeking to impact global issues like climate change, circularity and environmental protection.
“[We] are committed to preserving our planet by developing sustainable insulated metal panel and roof deck solutions, but also through the work being done in our communities,” said Natalia Rizzatti, AWIP’s president. “[Clean-up] efforts at each of our three plants is just another reminder of that initiative and we’re so proud of our employees for taking time out of their weekend to help further this mission.”
AWIP provides energy-efficient building solutions to help accelerate a zero-emissions future, including insulated metal panels designed to minimize the use of energy for heating and cooling of buildings. Products include up to 50% recycled materials and provide a wide range of qualifications for sustainable building design.
Other sustainability-oriented initiatives include its BIM 3D Viewer, designed to help specifiers and installers see how sustainable wall and roof components fit together to streamline the construction process.
