Andersen Corp.'s Andersen and Renewal by Andersen brands of wood and wood-composite windows and doors are now Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain-of-Custody certified. The certification was awarded by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), a third-party certification and assessment body based in Emeryville, Calif.

To achieve FSC Chain-of-Custody certification, companies must meet FSC's standards for traceability and distribution, and all stages of production, distribution, and sale of a product must be independently evaluated. With FSC Chain-of-Custody certification, use of Andersen and Renewal by Andersen windows and doors earns points under USGBC LEED Materials and Resources Credit 7: Certified Wood, the company says.

Andersen's FSC certification affirms the company's commitment to sustainability and assures its customers that Andersen and Renewal by Andersen products meet the highest forestry standards, according to J. Glasnapp, vice president of corporate sustainability and quality for Andersen. Windows and doors in the Andersen and Renewal by Andersen lines also recently received SCS' Indoor Advantage Gold certification for indoor air quality.
