The roofing manufacturer GAF, based in Parsippany, New Jersey, has announced that its EnergyGuard Polyiso insulation board has been certified for recycled content by GreenCircle Certified. The certification verifies the percentage of pre- and post-consumer recycled content included in the product.

In an announcement, GAF says it is the first roofing manufacturer to earn the distinction from Green Circle for Polyiso roof insulation, which has the highest R-value per inch of any rigid foam board.

The certification was awarded after GreenCircle Certified,  an independent third party, performed a thorough analysis, including a site visit of three GAF insulation manufacturing plants and supply chains. This process verified the accuracy and quantity of all recycled content claims made by the manufacturer.

“GreenCircle congratulates GAF on their achievement in obtaining GreenCircle Certification for their EnergyGuard Polyiso insulation board,” says Ted Radzinski, certification officer. “This verification affords both GAF and their customers the confidence that the advertised percentages of recycled content in this product are accurate and transparent.”

“This confirmation of our published data documents what we've been doing all along: making a great product and using pre- and post-consumer recycled ingredients to do it,” says Martin Grohman, executive director of sustainability at GAF.
