GAF Energy Timberline Solar Energy Shingle
This product integrates solar tech into existing roofing processes and materials.
Lake City, Colo., June 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — “The clock is ticking … Each day seems to bring new warnings about the human acceleration of climate change,” says Matt Power, Green Builder’s Editor-in-Chief. “We have less time than we thought to clean things up before environmental damage becomes irreversible.”
In response to this dire reality, Green Builder collects and vets 50 of the most sustainable products each year to help builders and home buyers make the best product choices for their homes. “Formerly called “The Hot 50,” this list of prominent, enviro-friendly products has a new handle: “Sustainable Products of the Year” Power explains. “This change is intended to help the 50 annual recipients spread the word of their innovations to the wider world.”
Of the 50 products selected this year, 12 were singled out for a second level of recognition: The Decarbonization Dozen. “These products go above and beyond to move the needle on CO2 reduction,” notes Power.
