Deceuninck North America Earns GreenCircle Recertification for Closed-Loop Window Extrusions, Recycled Content

June 7, 2023

Deceuninck North America, an industry-leading manufacturer and extruder of energy-efficient residential and commercial PVC window and door components and systems, has earned recertification from GreenCircle Certified, LLC, a third-party verifier that provides independent evaluations of sustainable products and operations. These certifications make Deceuninck the only window lineal provider in the world that is certified by GreenCircle. 

GreenCircle evaluated Deceuninck’s PVC window lineals and manufacturing operations in Monroe, OH, to verify sources of recycled materials and identify the degree of recycled content within its supply chain. The company’s claims were independently verified to adhere to ISO 14021, Definition of Recycled Content, and the FTC Green Guides.

“Certification from a third party validates our claims of the recycled content in our window lineals and of our sustainability mission overall,” said Joren Knockaert, president and CEO of Deceuninck North America. “Our customers rely on us to provide eco-friendly products for residential and commercial construction throughout the continent, and GreenCircle certification serves as an essential proof point on this front.” 

Deceuninck’s comprehensive recycling program collects end cuts and other scraps from fabricator partners and reintroduces the content back into its manufacturing process. By doing so, the organization reclaims unused product that would otherwise end up in the waste stream. 

The recent GreenCircle recertifications are just one component of Deceuninck’s larger goal to operate as a more environmentally friendly organization, which also includes a commitment to reduce its CO2 emissions by 60% by 2030. The long-term goal is to operate at net zero by the year 2050. 

The Deceuninck North America GreenCircle certifications are in effect through April 2024.
