Last month, Andersen Corporation and its subsidiaries were honored yet another year with the prestigious 2018 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award. ENERGY STAR reserves this distinction for companies that are continually leading the fight to reduce energy use by developing sustainable products that are ever more energy-efficient, and Andersen Corporation definitely fits the bill. This is Andersen’s fourth year to receive this award, and its ninth time being recognized by the ENERGY STAR program.
A Little About the ENERGY STAR® Program
The ENERGY STAR program was founded in 1992 by the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency in an effort to educate consumers by providing straightforward, unbiased information about the environmental impact of the products they buy. The ENERGY STAR seal is one of the most recognized consumer symbols in the country, and thousands of businesses and organizations have used their partnership with the ENERGY STAR program to save U. S. consumers money and energy – to the tune of $450 billion and 3.5 trillion kilowatt-hours of electricity since the program’s inception.
A History of Leadership
Andersen has long been a leader in the window manufacturing industry, building a brand and creating new and improved products that consumers recognize and inherently trust. This is partly due to Andersen’s alignment with the ENERGY STAR program. As an ENERGY STAR partner for the past 20 years, Andersen sets the bar high when it comes to minimizing the company’s impact on the environment while maximizing energy efficiency. Not only that, but Andersen has also committed to decreasing energy use across the board in its operations, with a goal of reducing it by 20% by the year 2020 (using 2013 as the baseline).
