TGP is in the process of completing Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for our key product lines. These EPDs will further our commitment to environmental stewardship and support our customer's environmental goals. These EPDs will be fully compliant with LEED V4.0 and V4.1 and, among other things, will disclose the carbon footprint of our products. With this information, we will be able to identify the most impactful environmental drivers throughout the life cycle of our product, which will support us in the development of product-related carbon goals, such as carbon neutrality.
