Targets for 2030

Products recycled, reused or repurposed at end of use.

Reduction in the carbon footprint of our products compared to a 2019 baseline.

Reduction in the water intensity of our products compared to a 2019 baseline.


Ceiling recycling program

We have been an early leader in integrating circularity principles into our products. Since 1999, we have operated our Ceiling Recycling Program, which allows our customers to recycle their end-of-life ceiling tiles to be remanufactured into new products. As of 2020, the program has diverted  over 200 million square feet of used ceiling materials from the landfill. The program also helps our customers meet their own waste-reduction targets, and we provide calculators that directly measure the resulting environmental impact and savings. 

As part of our 2030 targets, we will be expanding our efforts around recycling, reusing and repurposing into other product categories. 

How we helped CBRE recycle their ceiling tiles

Ceiling Recycling Client Outcome: CBRE-Armstrong Ceilings

The CBRE-Armstrong Ceilings partnership helps customers save money and meet waste diversion goals by collecting old ceiling panels to our facilities to be repurposed as new high-recycled-content Armstrong ceilings.
