What is ISO 14001?

Curious about how Clayton continues to innovate when it comes to environmental management? Allow me to explain what ISO 14001 is and how we use it here at Clayton.

The International Organization for Standardization, or ISO, is an international group that promotes worldwide standards on everything from food safety to risk management to laboratory testing. The ISO 14000 standards are developed by ISO Technical Committee ISO/TC 207 and its various subcommittees. Specifically, ISO 14001 provides greener building guidelines for companies to follow to reduce energy use and waste.

At Clayton, we’re committed to doing all we can to reduce our impact on the environment, through efforts like recycling materials and wastewater, or improving dust control in our facilities. The Clayton Built® team has diverted over 123,000 tons of waste from landfills since 2017.

We care about being sustainable, and that’s why 40 of our home building facilities and 11 of our Clayton Supply facilities are ISO 14001 certified.

We also know our customers care about sustainability, too, which is why our new homes are available with environmentally-friendly features like ecobee smart thermostats and low-E windows as part of our Energy Smart Home package .
