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.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
