Sustainability. We believe that part of being a good corporate citizen means making environmentally responsible decisions in our own business practices and supporting products that can help consumers use fewer natural resources.
Our windows and doors segment uses advanced materials, such as vinyl and fiberglass, to create energy-efficient products, many of which have earned the Energy Star designation. Energy-efficient products can help homeowners not only reduce their heating and cooling costs, but also their carbon footprint. In 2011 and 2010, Moen received recognition from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for its significant efforts to promote and encourage water conservation and advance the EPA's WaterSense program's mission. MasterBrand Cabinets helped create the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA) Environmental Stewardship Program, which encourages cabinet manufacturers to use environmentally responsible materials and manufacturing processes.
