Ceres Climate Declaration

Andersen was proud to be one of the first major building product manufacturers to sign the Ceres Climate Declaration. With growing consensus that climate poses near- and long-term threats to the environment, communities and business, signing the Declaration affirms our intention to be part of the solution by providing energy efficiency solutions that reduce the carbon impacts of buildings.

“TACKLING CLIMATE CHANGE IS ONE OF AMERICA’S GREATEST ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES OF THE 21ST CENTURY. (AND IT’S SIMPLY THE RIGHT THING TO DO.)”

Sustainability: Advancing Goals
Andersen was the first major window and door manufacturer to establish public sustainability goals.

Advancing our Sustainability Goals

In late 2014, Andersen set new corporate goals to reduce solid waste, energy and water use by 20 percent per unit of product by 2020, using 2013 as a baseline. We were the first major window and door manufacturer to establish public sustainability goals.

Declaring public goals was an important step in solidifying our intention and commitment to “walking the walk” within our own four walls. We are now in the process of building a plan to achieve our goals by identifying projects and investments at each of our facilities. Read more about our performance and progress here.
