Trex Company Honored For Manufacturing ‘Greenest’ Decking

Stocks in this article: TREX

Trex Company (NYSE: TREX), the world’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking and railing, recently took top honors in the decking products category of the Green Builder Media 2012 Reader’s Choice Brand Study. More than 50 percent of readers who participated in the study selected Trex ® decking as the “greenest” in the industry.

Built on green principles and values, Trex products offer a truly environmentally responsible choice to consumers. As the largest plastic bag recycler in the United States, Trex annually turns approximately three billion recycled plastic bags into eco-friendly outdoor living products. In addition, Trex salvages and keeps more than 400 million pounds of plastic and wood scrap out of landfills each year.

“As an industry leader, we feel a responsibility both to set the standard for eco-friendly outdoor living products and manufacturing processes and to help solve today’s environmental challenges,” said Ron Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex. “This recognition from the readers of Green Builder is especially significant as it confirms consumers are knowledgeable about and appreciative of the ways in which Trex works to protect the environment.”

On a community level, Trex participates in a variety of recycling initiatives that promote environmental education and responsibility. Through the Plastic Bag Challenge, Trex partners with grade schools to collect plastic bags in return for benches made of wood-alternative materials. The company also regularly seeks third-party audits to ensure continuous improvement of its green practices. In fact, Trex is the first company in the wood-alternative decking industry to receive an International Code Council Evaluation Service® (ICC-ES) SAVE Verification for Recycled Content – confirming that all composite Trex products contain a minimum of 95.4 percent recycled content.

The January issue of Green Builder magazine will include comprehensive data from the 2012 Reader’s Choice Brand Study. Green Builder Media is the leading North American company in the residential building industry focused on green building and responsible growth. It provides information that inspires a commitment to sustainable living.
