Reduce, Recycle, Reimagine
Sustainability has been a part of the Duro-Last culture for more than 20 years. Founder, John R. Burt came up with the idea to make flooring out of scrap.
Duro-Last has a take back program where we can take roofs back at the end of their useful life and recycle them. These roofs are recycled into other products, including flooring, walkway pads and concrete expansion joints. This program is offered through each of the five Duro-Last plants.
Duro-Last has continued their leadership in sustainability as the first manufacturer to publish a product-specific PVC Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for single-ply PVC roofing membranes.
In addition to all of our internal processes that make Duro-Last a more sustainable company, we have also worked hard to obtain third party certifications. Certifications Duro-Last has achieved include:
NSF/ANSI 347 Platinum and Gold – This standard represents that Duro-Last manufactures a product that is third-party verified as sustainable, durable, and high performing. The Duro-Last membrane has earned NSF/ANSI 347 Platinum certification, making us only the second manufacturer to obtain the highest level. The certification applies to the following Duro-Last membranes:
Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) – Duro-Last was proud to publish the first product-specific PVC EPD in the North American roofing industry. Certified by the global public health organization NSF International, the Duro-Last EPD reports environmental impact data which assists building owners, contractors, architects and designers in making more informed purchasing decisions.
