Unlocking Carbon Savings with Plastic Insulation Materials 

In recent years, many essential industries including packaging, medical, automotive, and building sectors, have made commitments to improve the sustainability of their products and manufacturing processes. Within each of these essential industries, plastics have played a key role due to plastics’ durability and versatility.

Carbon reductions are often included in manufacturer sustainability goals and are a priority for the building sector both globally and domestically. As a result, many manufactures have sought to benchmark their product carbon footprint through life cycle assessments (LCAs). LCAs provide transparency data for producers, brand owners, consumers, and policymakers. This data can be used by producers to help inform product development and improvement decisions, building designers to inform design and product procurement decisions, and policy makers to encourage or mandate change.

American Chemistry Council

The American Chemistry Council’s mission is to advocate for the people, policy, and products of chemistry that make the United States the global leader in innovation and manufacturing. To achieve this, we: Champion science-based policy solutions across all levels of government; Drive continuous performance improvement to protect employees and communities through Responsible Care®; Foster the development of sustainability practices throughout ACC member companies; and Communicate authentically with communities about challenges and solutions for a safer, healthier and more sustainable way of life. Our vision is a world made better by chemistry, where people live happier, healthier, and more prosperous lives, safely and sustainably—for generations to come.
