“I am very proud of the dedication our team has shown to advance the goals of the three pillars of our sustainability program,” said AWI CEO and President Vic Grizzle. “We have made great strides in operationalizing and embedding sustainability into our business at Armstrong. This report highlights how we’re making progress to lessen our own environmental impact while innovating and collaborating to bring products to market that our customers need to meet their own need for sustainable solutions.”

The report showcases the company’s Building Better Together initiative that launched in 2023 to encourage collaboration and innovation to develop the solutions needed to meet the sustainability and health challenges in the built environment today. The report also highlights the introduction of energy-saving Ultima® Templok® ceiling panels which are the first product in what is expected to become a broader portfolio of solutions that can save energy and reduce carbon emissions generated by commercial buildings.
