What is ISO 14001?

Video Transcription

We understand that environmental sustainability is important to you as you build your new home, that’s why we have made a commitment for all Clayton home building facilities to become ISO 14001 registered.

ISO stands for International Organization for Standardization. This organization creates sustainable building guidelines that companies can implement to promote greener building practices to reduce energy consumption and the cost of waste management.

Clayton brands are leading the American manufactured home building industry by example by putting the well-being of team members and the environment first. ISO 14001 standards help us build more efficiently and in an environmentally friendly way through simple changes like added recycling efforts, better dust control and more efficient waste water management. By offering optional features on the homes we build like smart thermostats and high performance windows, home buyers have a chance to take this commitment of lowering energy consumption even further. Since beginning our ISO 14001 journey in January 2015, Clayton home building facilities have diverted over 16,544 tons of waste from winding up in landfills and have reduced dust by 31%. With such great success already, we can’t wait to see the long term effects of implementing this fantastic environmental management system.

Becoming ISO 14001 registered does not signal the end of a process but the beginning of one. We now have an even more rigorous inspection and review system along with follow ups to ensure ISO 14001 standards are maintained for years to come. When an organization makes a commitment to become ISO 14001 registered, they make a lifetime commitment to become a better steward of the environment.
