Hayward Environmental Conservation Policy

Conservation Statement

We recognize the opportunity, accept the responsibility, and will lead the journey to environmental stewardship. Leading is exactly what we have been doing.

FSCIn 1999, we were the first lumber company in the country to offer FSC-C015078 certified wood products to builders. Next, we sought out less toxic building materials for our customers followed by offering high performance ventilation systems to ensure all homes are filled with healthy, fresh air. Today we are the leader in enabling builders to build healthier homes using the Hayward Healthy Home Principles.

Finally, to help people across America to understand the health impacts of their home we launched HaywardScore.com. We have now enabled over 23,000 people to improve the health of their homes.

Helping our Communities

Since 1919, Hayward Lumber has been building and supporting communities on the Central Coast. We are very proud to support many local nonprofit organizations dedicated to helping the communities we serve. Part of our corporate mission is to give back within the communities where we live and work. Our focus has been on supporting nonprofit organizations that support youth services, education, careers in construction, health, housing, and environmental stewardship through financial donations and in-kind building material donations.
