ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
From offering "green" products that meet or exceed Energy StarŪ standards to planting trees in our communities, The Schield Family Companies and employees are committed to protecting the environment. This includes adhering to thoughtful manufacturing practices, designing energy-saving products, and implementing environmental preservation programs.

ENVIRONMENTAL MANUFACTURING PRACTICES
  • Recycling of paper, wood, glass, vinyl, chemicals, aluminum and other metals
  • Minimizing solid and hazardous waste
  • Incorporating renewable resource utilization practices (raw materials reuse and fuel programs) throughout the manufacturing and logistics processes
  • Training employees in environmental awareness
  • Using low-emitting Volatile Organic Compounds/Hazardous Air Pollutants coatings
  • Meeting or exceeding all applicable environmental standards and regulations
  • Developing and maintaining strong relationships and communications with federal, state and local governmental agencies
ENERGY-SAVING PRODUCTS
  • Energy Star-certified products for every climate zone
  • Aluminum-clad energy sash designed with less aluminum to reduce the conductivity of heat and cold
  • Warm Edge spacer technology, which insulates up to 50 percent better than conventional metal spacers
  • A triple-glazed window unit with a removable energy panel that adds an extra pane of insulation
  • Low E2 glass coatings that reduce heating and cooling costs
ENVIRONMENTAL PRESERVATION
During our annual "Plant-a-Tree" program, held in commemoration of Earth Day and Arbor Day, The Schield Family Companies gives away tens of thousands of seedlings to employees. These seedlings are planted in our communities in Wisconsin, Utah, West Virginia and Georgia to promote environmental stewardship companywide.
