TULSA, Okla. — AAON Inc. announced that it achieved Platinum level in the 2021 Sustainable Tulsa Scor3card verification program. This follows up the company’s achievements of Platinum in 2020, Gold in 2019, and Bronze in 2018. Platinum level requires completing more than 85% of eligible directives. The company reported on material topics in the areas of inclusion and diversity, community resilience, material management, energy, water, workplace health, and safety and transportation.

The company also decreased building energy usage intensity by 4% through capital improvement projects, such as adding new energy efficient production machinery and installation of new AAON HVAC equipment on the production facilities. An AAON Environmental, Social Governance (ESG) report for 2020 will be published later this year.
“ESG is at the core of our business strategies and corporate citizenship efforts,” said Gary Fields, CEO and president of AAON. “We are proud to participate in the Sustainable Tulsa Scor3card program and are continuously looking for ways to measure and improve our performance in these areas.”
