In the glazing market, “Today eco-labeling is a differentiator. Tomorrow, it may be a ticket to play,” said Helen Sanders, vice president, technical business development, 

 

Currently, the Department of Energy, through the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, is sponsoring the development of product category rules for windows, through a joint AAMA/GANA/IGMA/WDMA task group. 

 

ASTM International's program  "will provide scientifically based, quantifiable information about product parameters such as resource consumption and ozone depletion, which will give both businesses and consumers an understanding of a product's real impact on the environment," said Timothy Brooke, vice president of certification, training and proficiency testing, ASTM International, in a release.
