10-acre plot embodies company’s commitment to the local environment and community.

Holcim Building Envelope is pleased to announce that in October, the 10-acre habitat area it established in 2013 at its Prescott, Arkansas manufacturing plant has once again been certified by the Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) as an official Wildlife Conservation Area. An important part of the 75-acre campus, the habitat area serves as a sanctuary for local wildlife as well as an educational space for youth groups like Texarkana Caddo Area Council Scouts Troop and Pack 19 and illustrates just one way in which Holcim Building Envelope is embodying its commitments to biodiversity, conservation and community engagement. 

Involvement from community groups like the scouts, along with preserving native wildlife and hosting educational events, is part of the WHC’s stringent criteria for its Conservation Program. The scouts have kept busy rebuilding birdhouses and cleaning up damage from recent storms.

On August 27, the plant unveiled a new quarter-mile walking trail through the habitat area and marked the occasion with a ceremony during which additional native trees were planted. Team members and their families are welcome to walk, de-stress and enjoy local wildlife on the trail. 

The plant, which manufactures EPDM roofing membrane, flashing and seam tape products to be shipped globally, is Holcim Building Envelope’s largest and longest-running facility in the U.S. The Wildlife Conservation Area is part of Holcim’s “Wildlife at Work” initiative and connected to the company’s larger sustainability efforts, including its commitment to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 and developing the highest quality products and solutions that stand the test of time and the elements while contributing to a healthier planet.
