Fortune Brands Home & Security Inc. announced a flagship partnership with Yellowstone Forever, the official nonprofit partner of Yellowstone National Park, to help the park reach its sustainability goals over the next three years.
In celebration of its 150-year anniversary, Yellowstone is revitalizing employee housing and enhancing sustainability efforts. Fortune Brands is making monetary contributions toward the preservation of Yellowstone National Park and donating products from each of its business units to help update many of the park’s facilities.
These upgrades and insights will help the nation’s oldest national park meet its sustainability goals by reducing water consumption and conserving energy. The products will also help increase the comfort and functionality of the park’s common spaces and employee housing, according to a press release.
“We are proud to partner with Yellowstone National Park on a project that so closely aligns with our strategic focus on ESG and our purpose of fulfilling dreams of home while also leveraging our sustainable, innovative and cutting-edge brands,” says Nicholas Fink, CEO, Fortune Brands.
“This partnership is a natural fit for us, and it is an honor to be a part of preserving this national treasure for future generations to enjoy.”
The company’s Outdoors & Security business – which includes Therma-Tru – will be donating Energy Star qualified high-performance exterior doors to the park. Therma-Tru fiberglass doors are intended to help to reduce the amount of energy needed to heat and cool the housing units.
Moen, the company’s consumer faucet brand, will be providing faucets, sinks and showers for the park to use in housing units. The park’s housing units will be refreshed with cabinets from MasterBrand Cabinets.
“As we enter Yellowstone National Park’s 150th year, we recognize the responsibility we have to meet the challenges of the future,” said Lisa Diekmann, president and CEO, Yellowstone Forever. “By investing in sustainability efforts and critical employee housing needs, Fortune Brands’ exemplary leadership will help conserve resources for the benefit of this and future generations.”
The company is also working with Yellowstone Forever and Yellowstone National Park to deepen the partnership in the future, including expanding the partnership to include more of the Fortune Brands portfolio of brands.
