SUSTAINABILITY Brochure Marvin Integrity

  1. 1. SUSTAINABILITY Commitment to Greener Communities
  2. 2. Sustainability and environmental responsibility influence every aspect of our business. Through waste reduction, the wise use of resources and long-lasting, energy-efficient products, we live out the Integrity name. Integrity from Marvin® Windows and Doors has a long history of green-minded initiatives with recycling efforts, employee awareness and incorporating green components into our processes. To see our list of numerous honors and awards for green building, visit IntegrityWindows.com/Green. UncompromisedPerformance Integrity® Windows and Doors’ eco-friendly practices don’t compromise performance, because Integrity windows and doors are made with Ultrex® . Ultrex expands and contracts at nearly the same rate as glass, remaining tightly sealed with square corners. Since windows and doors last longer — with a 10 year product warranty to prove it — the energy used to produce them is put to more efficient use.
