GAF honors military veterans

GAF, Parsippany, N.J., has signed the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Statement of Support, recognizing the important role of the National Guard and Reserve and sending a message of support to the men and women who serve the U.S. GAF's statement of support complements other initiatives it has undertaken to support military veterans, servicemen and servicewomen, such as a Roofs for Troops military rebate program and a Hire-A-Hero military job board.

Additionally, GAF has participated in the Polyisocyanurate Insulation Manufacturers Association's (PIMA's) efforts to achieve third-party-verified ISO-compliant Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for polyisocyanurate roof and wall insulations. GAF contributed data to PIMA's EPD initiative as part of its ongoing effort to support the green building community. The polyisocyanurate roof and wall insulation EPDs inform architects and designers of the environmental effects of the products and contribute to credits in green building rating systems in many countries.
