In the Forest
Andersen is committed to responsibly sourcing materials from companies who value—and practice—environmental stewardship and social responsibility.
Responsibly Sourcing Materials
Rooted in Forest Stewardship
As the largest window and door manufacturer in North America, Andersen is a strong advocate for advancing sustainable practices in wood sourcing and utilization.
Andersen was the first of the top ten U.S. window manufacturers to obtain Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Chain-of-Custody (FSC-CO16636 and FSC-C107730) in 2008*, a certification that means that every stage of the supply chain, from sourcing to production to distribution, uses wood from responsibly managed forests. Ask about our FSC certified materials.
We also make a point of regularly visiting our wood suppliers and participating in forest tours to confirm that responsible practices are being followed on the ground. Read our Forest Resources Policy.
Operating Responsibly Throughout our Supply Chain
We visit our Tier 1 direct suppliers on an annual basis to review working conditions and environmental and human resources practices. Andersen has a zero-tolerance policy for the use of child or forced labor or human-trafficking practices.
