SUSTAINABILITY: THE ANDERSEN CORPORATION’S COMMITMENT

The Andersen Corporation has built a rock solid reputation for their staunch support of environmental causes. As part of their dedication to uphold sustainable principles, they have worked with other leaders in the industry to establish its first Environmental Product Declaration.

Sustainability Andersen Corporations Commitment

The Environmental Product Declaration

Andersen Corporation’s first Environmental Product Declaration is for a Renewal by Andersen Double-Hung window. The release of the EPD accompanies the publication of the industry’s Product Category Rule, a product of the collaboration of other industry leaders.

A leading Chesterfield, Missouri windows company, Andersen has worked with a collaborative team for the past four years in developing the window PCR. Product Category Rules define the scope in conducting life cycle assessments and EPDs. This aims to increase transparency and consistency across companies regarding manufacturers’ efforts to reduce product environmental impacts. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design rating system, among other green building certification systems, recognizes and rewards the utilization of products with a published EPD.

The company’s first EPD addresses a Renewal by Andersen Double-Hung window’s cradle-to-gate lifecycle impacts. This window features Fibrex, a pre-consumer recycled material made of up to 40 percent reclaimed wood fiber.

The Journey to Sustainability

According to Vice President of Sustainability Jim Weglewski, the publication of the first EPD is an important step in Andersen’s journey to sustainability. He adds, “Increasing product transparency supports our ongoing efforts to produce durable, energy-efficient products that help customers reduce energy consumption, lower utility costs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”

Enhancing product transparency also upholds the company’s commitment to the Ceres Climate Declaration and public sustainability goals, which involves reduction of operational water and energy use and waste by 20%, per unit of product, by 2020.

Following the steps of our parent company, Renewal by Andersen of St. Louis upholds integrity of creation by offering environmentally friendly home replacements and additions. We carry an array of Chesterfield doors and windows that can help you transition into a greener way of life.

"The service provided by Renewal by Anderson is great, both on the sales and the installation side. Our sales representative was very accommodating and helpful. The installation crew was efficient and they all were professional. These are really nice windows and a great upgrade especially from builder-grade windows."

"It is great to do business with a company that still cares about what they do and respects the end goals. We appreciate your craftsmanship professionalism, and cannot say enough about the wonderful experience.

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
