Our Sustainability Strategy

Our sustainability strategy has three pillars, which we have aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). The UN SDGs are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals to be achieved by 2030 "designed to be a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future." We at Armstrong are uniquely positioned to address 11 of the 17 goals through our three pillars.

 

Healthy and Circular Products

We are committed to responsible sourcing and to providing transparency in our products. In addition, we will design our products to minimize waste and pollution; support recycling, repurposing or reuse; and contribute to the regeneration of natural systems.

Healthy Planet

All our electricity sources will be renewable, and we will dramatically reduce carbon, waste and water impacts of our products and solutions.

Thriving People and Communities

Our workforce will be safe, diverse, inclusive and fulfilled, and we will actively contribute to our local communities.
