AWI Announces the Lowest Embodied Carbon Mineral Fiber Acoustical Ceiling Panels Available

Company’s most sustainable acoustical ceiling panels offer 43% reduction in embodied carbon compared to standard ULTIMA products.

To help reduce the carbon footprint of the built environment, Armstrong World Industries has officially launched ULTIMA Low Embodied Carbon (ULTIMA LEC) ceiling panels, offering customers the lowest embodied carbon mineral fiber acoustical ceiling panels available.* Compared to standard Armstrong ULTIMA ceiling panels, ULTIMA LEC delivers a 43% reduction in embodied carbon utilizing new technology that includes sustainably sourced, wood-generated biochar. ULTIMA LEC panels are USDA verified 100% biobased content.

“We couldn’t imagine a more perfect way to uphold the mission of Earth Day than by introducing ULTIMA Low Embodied Carbon ceiling panels to demonstrate our commitment to reducing the carbon footprint of our ceilings,” said Shannon Weir, Director, Mineral Fiber Product Management, Armstrong World Industries. “Embodied carbon reduction is being discussed more and more in the built environment and sometimes is required in project specifications. ULTIMA Low Embodied Carbon ceiling panels make it simple to specify and remain true to the design vision while supporting our customers’ sustainability goals.”

To enhance its commitment to the planet, Armstrong has purchased verified carbon removal offsets for the remaining global carbon emissions in ULTIMA LEC. This will make all ULTIMA LEC sales carbon neutral through 2026 while additional product innovation work continues to further reduce the carbon emissions associated with the product.
