LP Building Solutions Recognized as Sustainable Brand Leader 

LP Building Solutions, a manufacturer of high-performance building products, reports that its LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding was recognized as Green Builder Media’s Sustainable Brand Leader for the Siding category in its 2024 Brand Index

LP® Structural Solutions and LP WeatherLogic® Air & Water Barrier were awarded top 10 recognitions in the Structural and Building Wrap categories, respectively. 

The Brand Index looks at market trends and builder sentiment to evaluate products in the green building marketplace.

LP says it is committed to the development of sustainable building products engineered to meet or exceed the needs of the building industry while reducing the carbon footprint of construction.

The Brand Index rankings are determined using the weighted average of three factors: survey data to gauge builders’ perception of the “greenest brands,” market visibility, and sentiment data that track the number of positive brand mentions by customers.

This top ranking follows LP Smartside Trim & Siding’s 2022 Green Builder Brand Index win, a 2023 top-five recognition, and the release of eight environmental product declarations (EPDs) that demonstrate the carbon negativity of all LP SmartSide and LP Structural Solutions products analyzed. 

The EPDs, backed by third-party verification, provide transparency into the environmental footprints of LP products across their entire life cycles.

The company says its sustainability initiatives are driven by its environmental, social, and governance strategy across five core focus areas: governance, people, environment, products, and communities. 

For over 50 years, sustainability has been inherent to LP’s business model and culture, from responsible forest management and efficient manufacturing to the way the company supports its team members and engages with communities, according to the company. 

LP says it continues to set the benchmark for excellence through its engineered wood products and manufacturing processes, which are characterized by resilience, sustainability, and efficiency. 

As LP looks to the future, the company remains committed to enhancing its environmental stewardship efforts by refining processes and emphasizing responsible practices throughout its supply chain.
