Window manufacturers and suppliers who are convinced of the high-quality product wooden windows and wood-aluminium windows founded the Initiative ProHolzfenster e.V. in 1994. The association, which currently has around 350 members, changed its name to Bundesverband ProHolzfenster e.V. in 2008. The organs are the executive board (1st chairman and two deputy chairmen), the executive council and the general meeting.
The Bundesverband ProHolzfenster e.V. sees itself as a lobby for the frame material wood or wood-aluminium. Wooden windows demonstrably have the most favourable ecological balance and are an important contribution to global climate protection. They are aesthetically pleasing and timelessly beautiful, create a pleasant indoor climate and save energy. The association has set itself the task of helping wood and wood-aluminium windows to gain more market share. It ensures that the window is also included as an essential factor in the discussion about sustainable building materials.
