Trex Co. recently earned three high-profile accolades for its ongoing commitment to sustainability. Lowe’s honored Trex with its 2023 Sustainability Award, the company earned recognition as one of the 100 Best ESG Companies for 2023 by Investor’s Business Daily and, Trex was ranked by Newsweek magazine as one of America’s Most Responsible Companies.
In conjunction with America Recycles Day on November 15, Trex was presented with Lowe’s Sustainability Award at the home improvement retailer’s 2023 Vendor Partners of the Year celebration. Trex was recognized for its commitment to manufacturing sustainably made, wood-alternative decking, using 95% recycled and reclaimed materials.
Lowe’s joined the company’s NexTrex Recycling Program in 2022, collecting film scrap at its distribution centers across the country to be used in Trex’s manufacturing process, and already has contributed more than 1 million lbs. of recycled plastic to be upcycled into Trex decking.
“We are proud to offer a destination and second life for our country’s growing supply of plastic waste,” said Leslie Adkins, VP of marketing and ESG development for Trex Company. “Through our NexTrex program and with the help of eco-minded partners like Lowe’s, we hope to lead by example and inspire others to become part of the solution.”
Reinforcing Trex’s position as a sustainability leader, the company earned a spot among America’s Most Responsible Companies 2024. Presented by Newsweek magazine and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider, the list includes the top 600 most responsible companies in the United States based on a holistic assessment of corporate responsibility that considers all three pillars of ESG: Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance. The top 2,000 public companies by revenue with headquarters in the U.S. were analyzed based on KPI research and a public survey of 17,000 U.S. residents who were asked to select companies familiar to them and then evaluate each company’s Corporate Social Responsibility performance.
Trex was also named one of the 100 Best ESG Companies for 2023 by Investor’s Business Daily (IBD). Trex was selected from more than 6,000 global companies based on its high composite score for ESG sustainability. Scores were determined by Dow Jones Newswires, an IBD affiliate, using a combination of publicly available company data and an analysis of aggregated media coverage on each company. Within the Building Construction Products category, Trex was one of three companies to make the list.
Earlier this year, Trex was named a 2023 Eco Leader by Green Builder Media, a leading voice on sustainable building, and was voted the Sustainable Brand Leader for the 13th consecutive year by the readers of Green Builder magazine. Additionally, the company’s Trex Transcend Lineage decking line was recognized as one of Green Builder Media’s 2023 Sustainable Products of the Year.
“As a company founded on sustainable principles, environmental stewardship and corporate responsibility are embedded in the DNA of Trex, and these honors affirm that our core values are resonating with customers,” added Adkins. “We’re committed to continuing to innovate in ways that are gentler on the earth while giving shoppers high-performance products they can trust for decades to come.”
