Deceuninck North America Re-Certified by GreenCircle

August 28th, 2015 by Editor

For the fourth year, Monroe, Ohio-based Deceuninck North America has been re-certified for “Recycled Content” and “Closed Loop Products” by GreenCircle Certified LLC.

Deceuninck North America is the only window lineal provider certified by the third-party sustainability analyst.

“Third-party certification demonstrates that our products and operations are in compliance with our claims,” says Filip Geeraert, president and CEO. “GreenCircle helps us establish brand integrity and develop consumer confidence, which is key to building our brand, and the brands of our customers.”

The company earned its certifications by developing and maintaining a comprehensive recycling program that collects end cuts and other scraps from fabricator partners and reintroduces the content back into the manufacturing process. In this way, the company is reclaiming unused product that might have otherwise ended up in the waste stream.

“Today’s consumers are more informed, so there is an increasing demand for sustainable practices,” says Tad Radzinski, certification officer for GreenCircle. “With more and more misleading claims polluting the marketplace, certification ensures consumers that they are receiving a product that was manufactured responsibly—not simply marketed that way.”
