Andersen Publishes Environmental Product Declaration for E-Series Windows

November 22nd, 2021 by Editor

Andersen Corp. has published its first Environmental Product Declaration® (EPD) for the Andersen® E-Series casement/awning, double-hung, gliding and picture windows.

“Andersen has a longstanding commitment to durability, energy efficiency and sustainable materials. Publishing our first Environmental Product Declaration continues our leadership in product transparency within our industry,” said Andersen corporate sustainability manager Jon Smieja. “As we gather chemistry and lifecycle assessment data from our manufacturing sites and suppliers, we can utilize that information to identify ‘hotspots’ in our products and processes. This identification allows us to improve our products and source different and better materials.”

An EPD is the public-facing result of performing a lifecycle assessment (LCA) on a product. The LCA allows a manufacturer to evaluate a product’s environmental performance through its entire lifecycle. Andersen’s E-Series EPD helps designers and architects achieve their green building goals, including materials and resources credits for customers pursuing LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification and by providing data for embodied carbon calculations without compromising design aesthetics.

Andersen has also previously published four (4) Health Product Declarations® (HPDs) for the E-Series casement, awning, picture and double-h windows. With these four (4) HPDs, as well as the new EPD, the vast majority of the Andersen E-Series window portfolio has product transparency documentation to support customer needs and green building goals.
