Trex Named to Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable Companies List

Trex Company, manufacturers of wood-alternative composite decking and railing, and a leader in high-performance, low-maintenance outdoor living products, announced its inclusion in Barron’s list of the 100 Most Sustainable Companies for 2024. In its debut appearance, Trex came in at #68 and is the only decking brand to be included on this year’s list.

Barron’s, a leading financial publication, annually identifies and honors companies that demonstrate outstanding leadership in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices. For its seventh ranking, Barron’s tapped Calvert Research and Management to score the 1,000 largest publicly traded companies across 230 environmental, social and governance performance indicators, ranging from workplace diversity to greenhouse gas emissions. Trex’s commitment to sustainability, innovation, and corporate responsibility stood out, securing the company a coveted spot on the esteemed list.

Trex has long been a pioneer in sustainable outdoor living solutions, providing consumers with eco-friendly, durable and low-maintenance product offerings. The company’s signature product, Trex® composite decking, is made from a blend of 95% recycled materials, including reclaimed wood and recycled plastic film. This innovative approach not only diverts millions of pounds of waste from landfills each year but also reduces the demand for virgin materials.

In addition to its environmentally conscious manufacturing processes, Trex has consistently demonstrated a commitment to social responsibility and community engagement. The company prioritizes employee well-being, actively supports various philanthropic initiatives, and partners with organizations focused on environmental conservation.
