Sustainability & Environment

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 organization 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 FSC® (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 EU Timber regulations, effective March 2013, which aims to prevent the trade in illegal harvesting of timber into the European market.

JELD-WEN'S FSC license code is FSC® CO106039 and PEFC license code is PEFC/04-31-1264.

JELD-WEN’s goals are to be the industry leader in socially responsible practices and to conduct our business in a manner that demonstrates environmental stewardship. At JELD-WEN, we believe that a healthy environment and healthy business practices go hand in hand.

Our environmental stewardship philosophy manifests in many ways:

  • We design and produce long-lasting, energy-saving windows and doors.
  • Our manufacturing process utilizes recycled waste materials.
  • We manufacture products close to markets in order to minimize fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
