Boral Bricks Joins
The Climate Registry

Boral Bricks, Atlanta, Ga., has joined The Climate Registry as a founding member reporter, voluntarily submitting to greenhouse gas emissions protocol.

The Climate Registry is a non-profit organization established to measure and publicly report greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in a common, accurate and transparent manner consistent across industry sectors and borders. Thirty-nine U.S. states, the District of Columbia, as well as Canada and Mexico have collaborated to form The Climate Registry.

“We feel this is an important environmental initiative for our company in our commitment to be an industry leader in sustainability,” said Mary Ann Keon, environmental director for Boral. “Reducing greenhouse gas emissions will have a positive impact on the environment and our company on both a local and global level.”

Boral has committed to measure, independently verify, and publicly report the organization’s GHG emissions on an annual basis utilizing The Climate Registry General Reporting Protocol. The protocol is based on the internationally recognized GHG measurement standards of the World Resources Institute and World Business Council on Sustainability. To date, the total number of voluntary reporter companies is 260.

“Boral has committed to environmental leadership by courageously stepping forward to support The Climate Registry in its preliminary stages. We are deeply grateful for their integral support in helping to address the challenge of climate change,” said Gina McCarthy, chair of The Climate Registry.
