Previously, we discussed how Renewal by Andersen® replacement windows and patio doors help address some of today’s top environmental challenges. To continue with our special two-part blog on our environmental commitment, we discuss the partnerships that continue to help us with our environmental efforts:
- National Fenestration Rating Council – You may already be familiar with the white labels affixed to replacement windows, indicating ratings for things like U-factor and SHGC. These certifications are conducted by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), a nonprofit organization founded to ensure standardized, accurate and credible window performance ratings. All Renewal by Andersen replacement windows and patio doors bear NFRC labels and meet their energy requirements.
- ENERGY STAR® – You may also be familiar with the ENERGY STAR label on just about anything from electronics to home improvements. ENERGY STAR is a voluntary labeling partnership founded by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy. Products that bear the ENERGY STAR label—like Renewal by Andersen replacement windows and patio doors—meet or exceed strict criteria for energy efficiency and reduced carbon emissions.
- U.S. Environmental Protection Agency – The EPA recognizes our parent company Andersen® Corporation as a charter member of the Environmental Performance Track initiative, thanks to our environmental commitment, as discussed in our previous blog. The EPA also piloted a national program called Project XL that lets window companies (among others) promote continued volatile organic compound (VOC) reduction during production.
- U.S. Green Building Council – LEED, or the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a certification program created by the U.S. Green Building Council that recognizes residential and commercial properties that excel in three areas: energy efficiency, material and resource conservation and indoor environmental quality (including ventilation and daylighting). Renewal by Andersen replacement windows and patio doors have been used in LEED-certified properties.
- Alliance to Save Energy – Andersen Corporation is a member of the Alliance to Save Energy, the leading energy efficiency coalition in the United States. The Alliance to Save Energy advocates enhanced energy efficiency to achieve a healthier economy, cleaner environment and enhanced energy security.
