The AZEK Company, Inc., manufacturer of outdoor living products including TimberTech decking, Versatex and AZEK trim and StruXure pergolas, has been named a winner of the inaugural CohnReznick 2022 Gamechangers in ESG award, which celebrates U.S.-based businesses that are driving positive change for their people, clients and communities through Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG).

“The AZEK Company is committed to innovating, inspiring, reinventing, and revolutionizing the outdoor living industry to create a more sustainable future,” said Jesse Singh, CEO of The AZEK Company. “What makes us unique is our ability to turn hundreds of millions of pounds of otherwise landfill-bound scrap and waste into products that primarily replace wood on the outside of homes and are sustainably engineered to last beautifully. On behalf of the entire AZEK team, we are honored to receive this recognition as an ESG gamechanger.”

This award further highlights AZEK’s ongoing commitment to making a lasting impact on the world, while fostering a culture that champions diversity, equity and inclusion, and operating with integrity and accountability to always do the right thing. A few of AZEK’s recent ESG accomplishments include:

  • Diverted approximately 500 million pounds of scrap and waste from landfills and used it to manufacture AZEK products in fiscal year 2021, with the goal of diverting one billion pounds of scrap and waste per year by the end of 2026.
  • Launched AZEK’s FULL-CIRCLE Recycling program to collect and repurpose construction site and post-consumer remodeling scrap into AZEK products; awarded one of Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas in 2021.
  • Formalized and launched a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion framework and signed onto the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion initiative.
  • Submitted a formal commitment letter to set science-based emissions reduction targets for validation by Science-Based Targets Initiative.

“We are delighted that nearly 100 organizations that were diverse in size and scale applied to our inaugural Gamechangers in ESG Awards program,” said David Kessler, CohnReznick CEO. “CohnReznick has been a leader in many industries that have been championing ESG strategies over many decades. Our goal in launching this program was to elevate the stories of companies and students changing the game through their ESG efforts in order to inspire other organizations in their own ESG journey. Our outstanding group of 2022 winners exemplify what it means to be an ESG gamechanger.”

Winners of the award program will be honored during a virtual awards ceremony this fall in collaboration with Major League Baseball through CohnReznick’s league sponsorship.
