As homeowners become increasingly dedicated to sustainable solutions for their homes, building professionals must also respond by improving environmental sustainability in construction. The benefits of building with the environment in mind are endless-and when sustainable products are built for durability and strength as well, it's an all-around win.
LP Building Solutions works to promote sustainability in the construction industry through product improvements, forestry management and more. Let’s take a look at the sustainability trend in detail and see how the LP Structural Solutions portfolio responds to it.
First, sustainability is important in the construction industry because our Earth has finite resources and there is an ever-growing demand for those resources, so it's our responsibility to use them as efficiently as possible. Building sustainably is also a way to care for local communities, as it minimizes the impact on the area during a build.
Ultimately, sustainable construction helps offset the impact builders have on the environment when they use its resources. That's why LP believes one of its primary opportunities lies in ensuring that the resources they use meet the needs of today's generation without compromising the needs of the next.
Sustainable construction techniques continue to grow as the need for sustainable building becomes more widespread. Here are a few of the ways LP tackles sustainability in its policies and its product portfolio:
