Green Initiatives

With our GreenNow initiative, Quaker is an industry leader in sustainability by recycling and reusing, while also reducing our own energy consumption and global footprint. During the fabrication process, we incorporate innovative recycling and resource conservation methods to create energy-efficient products that follow sound environmental practices.


Our aluminum and glass scraps are frequently reused by recyclers to maximize the use of materials that Quaker produces.


In all Quaker manufacturing facilities, we seek out ways to reduce waste of raw materials such as glass, aluminum, vinyl, wood, and paint through the use of advanced machinery and lean practices on the production floor.

Our in-house powder coat paint facilities were built with conservation in mind and have stopped years of environmentally damaging VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) entering the world that liquid paints would have produced.

By collecting and reusing non-hazardous overspray powder, we are able to achieve a near 100% use of paint coating, nearly eliminating unnecessary waste.

Quaker Commercial Windows & The NFRC

Quaker Windows & Doors is a member of The National Fenestration Ratings Council (NFRC). The NFRC provides detailed ratings on window and door products to measure and compare their energy performance. This shows that Quaker offers energy efficient products for even stringent thermal requirements.

A Dedicated ENERGY STAR® Partner

For over two decades, Quaker has been part of the government-run ENERGY STAR program that is used throughout the United States

Commercial windows and doors that are suitable for your climate zone and meet the ENERGY STAR criteria are guaranteed to be energy efficient and save money on heating and cooling bills for years to come.

U-Factor and SHGC:

To meet ENERGY STAR criteria, U-Factor and SHGC (solar heat gain) ratings are applied to products in order to show whether they are suitable for the four different U.S. climate zones (northern, north central, south central, southern). No matter the location of your commercial project, Quaker will always have options available that meet or exceed the necessary ENERGY STAR criteria.
