Our Approach

The glass industry is increasingly being called to promote environmental stewardship and provide a detailed level of green building support to meet our customers’ needs. At TGP, we recognize the importance of meeting these needs and providing firms with the materials and resources they need to complete their job. From showcasing environmentally responsible design at our Snoqualmie facility to providing product transparency, TGP pledges to be a reliable part of the process toward a more sustainable future.

Environmental Product Declarations

To further our commitment to environmental stewardship and to support our customer's environmental goals, TGP is in the process of completing Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for our key product lines. Fully compliant with LEED V4.0 and V4.1, these EPDs will disclose the carbon footprint of our products, among other important lifecycle factors. This information identifies the most impactful environmental drivers throughout the life cycle of our product, which will help support us in the development of product-related carbon goals, such as carbon neutrality.

We are also in the process of earning Living Building Challenge Red List Approved Declare Labels for our products. These labels are an important first step to improving visibility throughout the building materials industry. A Declare Label can be used for building projects seeking to achieve either the Living Building Challenge or LEED green building rating systems.

Our Products with Living Building Challenge Red List Approved Declare Labels

Several of our products have already earned a Living Building Challenge Red List Approved Declare label.

Recycling Practices

Because glass is one of the few materials that can be continuously recycled, our FireLite® products are made with recycled and reclaimed glass (cullet). The use of cullet helps reduce the amount of energy needed to produce each new batch of glass.

We also recycle our steel cut-offs.

Our packaging uses recycled corrugated cardboard materials instead of timber or plastic crating whenever possible.

Our Building

TGP’s Snoqualmie-based location participates in Puget Sound Energy’s Green Power program, matching 100% of our electricity with regional renewable energy, lowering our carbon footprint and supporting local renewable energy projects including Swauk Wind in Ellensburg, WA, and Neal Hot Springs in Vale, OR. It also minimizes energy consumption with state-of-the-art electrical design and HVAC systems.

Our Snoqualmie location is also certified LEED®-CI GOLD. To achieve this rating, our building includes the following environmental features:

  • Diverted 96% of construction waste from landfills.
  • Maximizes the use of outside light to reduce energy consumption and lighting requirements.
  • Reduces water consumption by 43% with low-flow water fixtures and using 100% reclaimed water for all irrigation, lowering impact on the local water table and potable water supply.
  • Provides healthy indoor air by using low VOC materials to achieve ventilation rates 34% above standard construction (includes adhesives, sealants, paints, coatings, carpet system, wood and agrifiber products, and furniture).

Transit Program

TGP sponsors community transit programs for all team members to help reduce the number of vehicles on the road each day.
