Integrity’s environmental efforts are a year-round commitment

Earth Month is a great time for those of us who work in the building industry to consider our role in sustaining the health of the ecosystem. Over the past decade, homes have become more efficient, appliances and HVAC systems have become smarter and everyday building professionals have gained a better understanding of what it means to build green. This industry has a lot to be proud of.
At Integrity, we are proud to support sustainable forestry management and are committed to conserving natural resources, including efforts to preserve old growth and ancient rain forests. We have a genuine appreciation for the critical role forests play in the quality of life within the global ecosystems.
Here a thing few things you may not have known about our company:
- Integrity utilizes pine in the manufacture of Wood-Ultrex windows and patio doors, a resource not associated with rainforests.
- Integrity purchases from reliable raw lumber suppliers with sound forest management practices, which subscribe to the Sustainable Forest Initiative (SFI) promoting good forest stewardship.
- Marvin is a Charter Member of the Forest Products Management and Development Institute at the University of Minnesota.
- Marvin supports the WDMA Green Task Force Statement of Beliefs.
Our commitment to conserving natural resources isn’t a one-day thing, a one-week thing or a month-long thing. This is our business, all year.
