What Does It Mean to Be an Energy Star Partner?
Andersen has been an ENERGY STAR partner since the Windows program began in 1998 and was the first window manufacturer awarded the ENERGY STAR National Window Partner of the Year in 1999. This is Andersen’s ninth Sustained Excellence Award and the 14th time the company has been recognized by the ENERGY STAR® program.
Andersen has a longstanding history of producing products that help reduce energy use and has participated in projects that aim to rely on less natural resources for over a century. In 2022, Andersen Corporation and Ubiquitous Energy announced their agreement to jointly develop a first-of-its-kind energy generating window and door products.
“Andersen has been committed to taking measurable steps to create sustainable products that consume fewer resources over time and have less impact on our critical natural habitats since our founding nearly 120 years ago,” said Brandon Berg, senior vice president, research, development and innovation at Andersen. “77 percent of Americans are concerned about the environmental impact of the products they purchase. We believe it is our responsibility to continue to innovate within energy efficiency and move the industry toward energy generation, through efforts like our joint development with Ubiquitous Energy.”
Each year, the ENERGY STAR program honors a select group of businesses and organizations that have made outstanding contributions in the transition to a clean energy economy. ENERGY STAR award winners lead their industries in the production, sale, and adoption of energy-efficient products, homes, buildings, services, and strategies. These efforts are essential to fighting the climate crisis, protecting public health, and creating a clean energy future for everyone.
The Sustained Excellence award is the highest honor bestowed by the ENERGY STAR program. Winners are part of a distinguished group that has made a long-term commitment to fighting climate change and protecting public health through energy efficiency. Andersen is among the nation’s leaders in driving value for the environment, the economy, and the American people.
“As we accelerate historic efforts to address climate change, public-private partnerships will be essential to realizing the scale of our ambition,” said EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan. “I applaud this year’s ENERGY STAR award winners for working with EPA to deliver a clean energy future that saves American consumers and businesses money and creates jobs.”
