Sustainability

JELD-WEN aspires to be the industry leader in environmentally responsible practices and products. We have committed ourselves to more sustainable business practices and environmental stewardship. This affects every aspect of our organisation and governs our approach to energy efficiency, air and water emissions and indoor air quality.

Our commitment to sustainability is reflected externally by the development of more environmentally beneficial products. To achieve this we have adopted policies for recycled materials and renewable energy, and increasingly source all our materials from sustainable sources.

All our employees are committed to ensuring that we comply with, or exceed, environmental and human welfare laws. Everyone is encouraged to identify opportunities for environmentally beneficial solutions. We strive to live up to the principles of our corporate responsibility every day - both in our products and in our actions.

We have a sustainable, renewable timber sourcing policy and are extremely proud to have received FSCĀ® (Forest Stewardship Council) and PEFC multi-site chain of custody certifications both dedicated to promoting the responsible forest management.

All JELD-WEN doors meet the new EU Timber regulations, effective March 2013, which aims to prevent the trade in illegal harvesting of timber.

JELD-WEN'S FSC license code is CO19943.
