Business leaders from across the country met recently at the headquarters of Armstrong Ceilings.

Assembled under the auspices of the North American Product Sustainability Roundtable, the participants learned about environmental initiatives put into practice by Armstrong Ceilings, as well as those undertaken by the federal government and the U.S. Green Building Council.

Facilitated by Five Winds International, the roundtable provided the opportunity for participants to explore approaches and tools for improving their own product-related environmental programs; to keep informed about emerging issues, practices and policy developments; and to refine their understanding of the benefits of sustainability.

Included among the companies participating in the Armstrong-hosted meeting were BASF, Black & Decker, Boeing, Dow Corning, DuPont, General Motors, Herman Miller, Nike, S.C. Johnson & Son, and United Technologies.
