Sustainable Windows – A Focus On Being Green
For Marvin Architectural the natural world isn’t an abstract concept; it begins right outside our door and goes as far as the eye can see. Being green — really green — is our commitment to the environment, to our employees, to our customers, and to their clients. But it’s also a commitment to our future, because as a privately-held, family-owned company we’re used to taking a long-term view, and we recognise that a serious commitment to green operation is just good business.
Sustainability informs every aspect of our business. Our fleet Is managed for fuel efficiency. Our trucks are maintained to reduce pollution and eliminate wasteful operation., and our routing is designed to optimise loading and unnecessary miles. We also continue to explore new ways to reduce waste and increase efficiency. Internally our research and development operations are constantly looking for new ways to make our products and processes more energy efficient. We have had a product analysis process in place for years to screen new materials for environmental impact prior to products entering our facilities. Of course everything we know and everything we learn about green products and processes makes its way to our customers.
A Green Commitment You Can Trust
At Marvin, we are committed to the health of forests, not just forests where we are or forests that supply the materials we use, but worldwide. We support the preservation of old growth and ancient rain forests, and financially support and enable the mission of the Tropical Forest Foundation. We support forest management education programs.
The Forestry Stewardship Council certification allows the homeowner to trace the wood in their window & door product right back to the very tree from which it is crafted. This is testament to Marvin’s commitment to best environmental and ethical practice.
The Marvin family of companies is dedicated to finding innovative, collaborative and practical ways to continuously improve the sustainability of our products and processes. No matter what you order, you can count on meticulous craftsmanship, respect for the environment, durability and energy efficiency.
