MATERIALS & RESOURCES
MR Credit 2: Construction Waste Management 1 to 2 Points
Divert construction, demolition and land-clearing debris from disposal in landfills and incinerators. Redirect recyclable recovered resources back to the manufacturing process. Redirect reusable materials to appropriate sites.
Marvin ships all products wrapped and cornered, rather than fully cartoned, to reduce packaging waste, most of which, including cardboard and plastic wrap, is fully recyclable. Marvin products are also available with a factory-applied prime coat to minimize on-site painting waste.
MR Credit 4: Recycled Content 1 to 2 Points
Increase demand for building products that incorporate recycled content materials, thereby reducing impacts resulting from extraction and processing of virgin materials.
Marvin products incorporate recycled materials extensively. Our glass contains 20% pre-consumer recycled content. Our major aluminum suppliers currently uses 15-25% purchased (post-consumer) scrap/recycled aluminum and 32-50% in-house (pre-consumer) scrap. Our fiberglass contains 5-10% recycled content. Average window composition is 30-60% glass, 30-60% wood and 0-15% aluminum.
MR Credit 5: Regional Materials 1 to 2 Points
Increase demand for building materials and products that are extracted and manufactured within the region, thereby supporting the use of indigenous resources and reducing the environmental impacts resulting from transportation.
Projects within 500 miles of Warroad, Minnesota (windows) or Ripley, Tennessee (doors) may be able to claim glass and Ultrex values under the Regional Materials credit.
If your project meets these geographic requirements, please contact your Marvin representative for further information.
MR Credit 7: Certified Wood 1 Point
To encourage environmentally responsible forest management.
Marvin products are available with chain-of-custody certification for FSC certified wood. All species are available FSC-certified, including tropical hardwoods Cedro Macho and Mahogany.
