October 18, 2023

MONROE, OH Deceuninck North America, an industry-leading manufacturer and extruder of energy-efficient residential and commercial PVC window and door components and systems, is pleased to announce that its operations meet the compliance criteria of +Vantage Vinyl – an initiative to advance the U.S. vinyl industry’s contribution to sustainable development. This verification ensures that Deceuninck North America’s production processes meet the most stringent standards of the Vinyl Sustainability Council (VSC) and GreenCircle Certified. 

Deceuninck has earned +Vantage Vinyl verification thanks to its efforts with regard to greenhouse gas reduction, water conservation, sourcing green electricity, phasing out fuel oil, sourcing lower carbon-intensive PVC resin, a comprehensive recycling program, a diverse workforce, charitable community efforts, and more. 

“Earning the +Vantage Vinyl verification is another feather in our cap highlighting our dedication to a sustainable production process,” said Joren Knockaert, president and CEO of Deceuninck North America. “Our approach dictates how we source materials, how we design and manufacture products, and how those products are shipped and delivered, and we are proud to be recognized by VSC and GreenCircle for our efforts.” 

+Vantage Vinyl verification is the latest acknowledgment for Deceuninck North America in a series of endeavors the organization has undertaken to become a more sustainable manufacturer and stronger corporate citizen. This includes setting ambitious goals to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions over the next three decades in accordance with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). In addition, for a tenth year, Deceuninck’s closed-loop window extrusions are GreenCircle certified, remaining the only GreenCircle-certified PVC window supplier in the world. 

+Vantage Vinyl-verified organizations are measured against sustainability requirements that take into account the entire vinyl supply chain. These five core categories include environmental stewardship, social diligence, economic soundness, collaboration, and open communications. Companies earning the prestigious +Vantage Vinyl mark must report on sustainability performance every year and be reverified every three years to maintain their status.
