Promoting sustainability is hardly a small-scale commitment. This is why Renewal by Andersen® has partnered with organizations with the same goal. To conclude this two-part blog, we’ll take a closer look at the partnerships that have helped make our replacement windows sustainable and eco-friendly.
The National Fenestration Rating Council
The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) is a non-profit organization that offers energy-efficiency certification for replacement windows, entry doors and skylights. NFRC certification labels provide at-a-glance information for homeowners and are seen on nearly every replacement window displayed in showrooms. This helps homeowners choose the windows that fit their needs in terms of energy efficiency and maximizing natural light.
ENERGY STAR is an initiative between the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy, aiming to help consumers identify energy-efficient products at the point of purchase. Certified by both NFRC and ENERGY STAR, every Renewal by Andersen windows installation is guaranteed to help reduce your monthly energy consumption.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
The EPA is a Federal organization created to write and enforce regulations based on laws passed by Congress, with the aim of protecting human and environmental health. Our parent company Andersen Corporation is a recognized charter member of the EPA’s Environmental Performance Track initiative. Also, our commitment to reducing volatile organic compounds (VOC) at process level is monitored through our Andersen XL program, which is based on the EPA’s Project XL.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is the certification program for residential and commercial property owners who aim to maintain energy-efficient, material-conscious and environmentally friendly buildings. It was founded by the Green Building Council, which has certified many properties that feature Renewal by Andersen replacement windows.
Alliance to Save Energy
Andersen Corporation is an Alliance to Save Energy member, along with members of the Congress and many corporate executives. Together, Alliance to Save Energy members promote energy-efficient products, processes and practices that contribute to energy security, a cleaner environment and a healthier economy.
