Key Insights

Trex: Leading the Way in Sustainable Building

Trex isn’t just a name in decking; it’s a symbol of environmental responsibility. For the second time, they’ve been recognised as an Eco-Leader, an award reserved for companies making a real difference in sustainability. They’re the only decking brand to ever receive this prestigious honour, and it’s clear why.

Innovation at its Greenest

Trex pioneered composite decking over 30 years ago, using plastic waste and reclaimed wood for beautiful, long-lasting decks. Today, their decking is made from 95% recycled materials, including plastic film and wood scraps. They’re also one of the biggest plastic film recyclers in North America, diverting millions of pounds of waste from landfills each year.

Green Practices, Green Results

But Trex doesn’t stop at recycled materials. They use vegetable oil in hydraulic systems instead of petroleum-based fluids, reuse process water, and strategically locate factories to reduce emissions. They even collaborate with suppliers to ensure sustainability throughout the supply chain.

Award-Winning Sustainability

Their commitment to green practices doesn’t go unnoticed. Last year, Trex was named the Sustainable Brand Leader in the decking category by Green Builder Media for the 13th year in a row! Their latest innovation, the Trex Transcend® Lineage™ decking line, even made it onto Green Builder’s list of the 50 most Sustainable Products of the Year.

Choose Trex, Choose Sustainability

When you choose Trex, you’re not just choosing a beautiful deck; you’re choosing a product that reflects your commitment to the environment. With their innovative practices and dedication to sustainability, Trex is setting the standard for the decking industry.
