Custom® Building Products
Custom® Building Products is committed to environmental responsibility — in
the products produced and in manufacturing practices. Under this philosophy,
we search continuously for ways to reduce the burden on the environment and

Custom’s Build Green Commitment
Most Custom products help contribute to LEED certification in at least one of three categories:
• Low-emitting materials that contribute to indoor environmental quality
• Recycled content
• Local manufacturing and raw materials from within 500 miles of manufacturing site
Custom uses recycled materials whenever possible in manufacturing our tile and stone installation products. Recycled
materials help conserve natural resources and reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills.
Custom’s complete line of lightweight products conserves energy by using less fuel for transport. Also, many of these
products contain recycled materials.
Regional production of products at 10 locations throughout the country ensures many products will be manufactured
within 500 miles of your project site – reducing transportation emissions.
Environmentally Responsible Plants
Custom adheres to tight, self-imposed requirements to minimize waste and pollution at every facility, and all plants follow
stringent energy conservation guidelines. Waste is reduced through source reduction and recycling, and disposed of by
safe, environmentally responsible means. Solid airborne particles in Custom’s plants are recycled to so that they don’t end
up in landfills, and waste is never permitted to enter the
