The AZEK® Company and TimberTech® Recognized for Climate and Environmental Leadership, Named One of America’s 2023 Climate Leaders by USA Today; Wins Environment + Energy Leader 2023 Product of the Year Award for TimberTech Advanced PVC Decking

The AZEK Company Inc. (NYSE: AZEK) ("AZEK" or the “Company”), the industry-leading manufacturer of beautiful, low-maintenance and environmentally sustainable outdoor living products, including TimberTech® decking and railing, Versatex® and AZEK® Trim, and StruXure™ pergolas, today announced that it has been named to USA Today’s first-ever list of America’s Climate Leaders, recognizing the Company’s reduction in greenhouse gas emissions between 2019 and 2021. Additionally, TimberTech by AZEK’s Advanced PVC wood-alternative decking collection was named a winner of Environment + Energy Leader’s 2023 Top Product of the Year Awards in recognition of its sustainability attributes, including being made from approximately 60% recycled content, recyclability at end-of-life through AZEK’s FULL-CIRCLE Recycling program and lower life cycle carbon footprint versus traditional wood decking.

“We are honored to receive such esteemed recognitions from both USA Today and Environment + Energy Leader, underscoring our leadership, commitment, action and continued progress on creating a more sustainable and circular future,” said AZEK CEO Jesse Singh. “Since 2019, we have used nearly 1.7 billion pounds of otherwise landfill-bound waste and scrap to manufacture products across our industry-leading portfolio of outdoor living products. Our focus on increasing the use of recycled plastic material not only helps solve a broader societal problem of plastic waste, but also reduces the lifecycle environmental impacts of our products, lowers our carbon footprint and reduces our raw material costs. We will continue to lead by example, act to further reduce our environmental impacts and revolutionize our industry to create a better future.”

To determine America’s Climate Leaders, USA Today and Statista ranked U.S.-based companies on how much progress they made in reducing Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emission intensity between 2019 and 2021. Emission intensity measures the amount of greenhouse gases a company produces relative to its revenue, which allows for comparisons across companies of varying sizes. An original grouping of 2,000 U.S.-based companies was narrowed to 400 U.S. companies that cut their emissions intensity from 2019 to 2021. The data-driven recognition reflects some of AZEK’s recent accomplishments, which include reducing Scope 1 and 2 emissions intensity by approximately 15% from 2019 to 2021 and sourcing carbon-free electricity for most of its manufacturing operations.

For over a decade, the Environment + Energy Leader Awards have celebrated excellence in the world of environmental, sustainability and energy management. Award recipients are acknowledged as industry leaders, and featuring a Top Project or Top Product of the Year Award badge signifies their outstanding contributions. Companies seeking sustainable and energy management solutions trust that E+E Product of the Year Award winners offer a comprehensive array of vetted products to guide their decision-making.

The outstanding environmental qualities of TimberTech Advanced PVC decking resonated with the program's distinguished panel of judges. One judge remarked, "This product stands out for its exceptional quality while boasting a lower carbon footprint. Additionally, it plays a crucial role in repurposing materials that would otherwise contribute to landfill waste, thereby promoting a sustainable and environmentally responsible approach." Another judge added, "The potential for this product to drive a successful shift away from timber usage while diverting millions of pounds of waste from landfills is significant." These testimonials affirm the exceptional impact and excellence of TimberTech decking in driving both sustainability and circularity in the building products industry.

Sarah Roberts, Co-President of Environment + Energy Leader, emphasized the rigorous selection process, stating, "This year’s entrants had to surpass an exceptionally high bar to qualify for an award, thanks to a seasoned and discerning judging panel as well as stringent judging criteria."
