There’s a lot of talk these days about protecting the environment. Some replacement window companies seem to think that if you want to do your part to conserve natural resources and reduce your carbon footprint, you shouldn’t mind paying more for the privilege. And, in some instances, that might be the case, but at Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey, we don’t think you should have to give up financial responsibility for environmental responsibility.
That’s why we work hard to bring you home improvement products – replacement windows and patio doors – that allow you to do both. When we talk about corporate responsibility, we aren’t just talking about recycling ink cartridges and saving a handful of trees by recycling office paper either.
What Does Corporate Responsibility Mean to You?
Corporate responsibility is one of those catch-phrases that could mean different things to different folks. When we talk about corporate responsibility, we’re talking about an all-inclusive approach that covers everything from how we design our replacement windows to the work environment we provide for our employees and not only what materials we use to build our windows, but how we acquire building supplies and from whom.
Our parent company, Andersen Windows, has been recognized as a leader in the replacement window industry many times over the past century for choosing to do the right thing – but it isn’t about the recognition. It’s about building relationships with our customers and neighbors living in the communities we serve.
Protecting Our World, One Product at a Time
In the age of computers and digital everything, people don’t spend as much time outdoors as they did in the early days of Andersen Windows. The shift to spending the majority of our time indoors poses health hazards – some that many people don’t even know exist.
Many construction products – carpets, paint, PVC (plastic) and drywall emit harmful gases long after they wind up in a consumer’s home. Determining how toxic a construction material is can be confusing. As an example, think about the last time you bought a brand new shrink wrapped shower curtain. Remember that sharp smell when you opened the wrapper? That smell is evidence of toxic gas created during the manufacturing process.
Renewal by Andersen replacement windows and doors are designed to reduce the toxic emissions our customers and employees are exposed to. Frames made with our patented Fibrex material are less toxic to people and the environment because they do not require routine painting to maintain a beautiful exterior surface and the manufacturing process does not include harsh chemical wood protectants.
Plus, Fibrex is manufactured using a high percentage of reclaimed wood and thermoplastic polymer – which means fewer live trees are harvested when our factories build replacement windows mounted in Fibrex frames. But, it doesn’t stop there. Fibrex is also reclaimable in our plants. Finding cost-effective, creative ways to use, salvage and reuse our manufacturing materials without exposing our employees or customers to high-level emissions is a corporate choice to assume environmental responsibility. Because our parent company works so hard to ensure our products meet the strictest industry standards for indoor air quality, Andersen Windows was the first company to receive the Green Seal of Approval.
Using Wisdom to Save You Money
We consider the environment from product concept to installation in your home. We carefully vet our suppliers and shipping partners to ensure everyone upstream and downstream shares common values and core principles. By using reclaimed manufacturing materials, we reduce the fossil fuel needed to deliver consumable building materials to our factory – which saves us, and you, money. When we save money, we’re happy to pass along the savings to you, our valued customer.
