Trex Company, the world’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative composite decking and railing, has announced its inclusion in Barron’s prestigious list of the 100 Most Sustainable U.S. Companies for 2024. In its debut appearance, Trex came in at #68 and is the only decking brand to be included on this year’s list.

Barron’s, a leading financial publication, annually identifies and honors companies that demonstrate outstanding leadership in environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices. For its seventh ranking, Barron’s tapped Calvert Research and Management to score the 1,000 largest publicly traded companies across 230 environmental, social and governance performance indicators, ranging from workplace diversity to greenhouse-gas emissions. Trex’s commitment to sustainability, innovation and corporate responsibility stood out.

“At Trex, sustainability is at the core of everything we do. This recognition from Barron’s is a testament to our ongoing dedication to environmental responsibility, ethical business practices and creating positive impacts in the communities where we operate,” said Leslie Adkins, group vice president of marketing and ESG development for Trex Company. “We are pleased to have these efforts recognized and to be named among so many other companies that share our commitment to conducting business in a sustainable manner. We’ve certainly punched above our weight class on this list of impressive names.”

Trex signature product, Trex composite decking, is made from a unique blend of 95% recycled materials, including reclaimed wood and recycled plastic film. This innovative approach not only diverts millions of pounds of waste from landfills each year, but also reduces the demand for virgin materials.

In addition to its environmentally conscious manufacturing processes, Trex has demonstrated a commitment to social responsibility and community engagement. The company prioritizes employee well-being, actively supports various philanthropic initiatives and partners with organizations focused on environmental conservation.

“Trex was founded on sustainable principles and continues to make sustainability a priority,” added Adkins. “As consumer awareness of sustainable practices continues to grow, we strive to stand out as a brand that not only provides high-quality products but also aligns with the values of environmentally conscious consumers.”

Trex’s inclusion in Barron’s list highlights its role as an industry leader committed to making a positive impact. The full list of Barron’s Top Sustainable U.S. Companies of 2024 can be found here.
