Building a Better Future For All

Sustainability is built into our strategy

Our purpose has become our guiding light, defining why we do what we do: Building a better future for all.

One critical way that we will deliver on our purpose is by embracing bold and meaningful Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) commitments. We are advancing our ESG commitments with even larger ambitions across the company while putting roadmaps in place to get us there and hold ourselves accountable.

Sustainability is a never-ending journey for us. So, we continue to identify and develop solutions that do right by our planet, our people, and the communities where we operate.

Raising our level of ambition

James Hardie is committed to improving our sustainability performance proactively by carefully managing our social and environment impacts. To help us track and assess our progress, we established sustainability goals that align directly with issues that matter most to our stakeholders and our overall corporate objectives.

Encouraged by our progress in FY23 and the possibilities of what can be achieved, we have adopted new, more ambitious goals for our carbon footprint, waste and inclusion and diversity goals (I&D) initiatives. All our ESG goals ensure that James Hardie will continue to positively impact our employees, the customers we serve and the communities in which we operate.

NEW James Hardie New Zealand EPD

We are pleased to announce the launch of the first EPD for James Hardie New Zealand.

An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is an independently verified and registered document that communicates transparent and comparable data and other relevant environmental information about the life-cycle environmental impact of our products

Key features of our EPD include:

  • 97% of our product volume is covered
  • It covers the full product lifecycle from cradle to grave for a complete picture
  • It uses material and manufacturing inputs from the 2021 calendar year
  • Re-carbonation - this is a natural process in cement-based products in which cement reacts with the air and reabsorbs carbon dioxide (CO2) during the use phase of the product.
  • The EPD complies with ISO 14025 and EN 15804:2012+A2:2019
