By producing sustainable solutions for buildings that create better indoor environments, reducing environmental impact, and providing better health and well-being for people. By engaging respectfully with the people we work with; by giving back to the societies we do business in; and by working responsibly with the natural resources we all depend on.
That’s what corporate responsibility at the VELUX Group is all about.
Historically low number of work accidents
For the second year in a row, we had the lowest number of accidents ever; in 2014, we recorded only 11. This equals 0.9 accidents per 1 million working hours and 0.2 lost working hours per 1,000 due to accidents. The result shows that our relentless focus on safety makes a difference − and we are determined to continue that work.Historically low number of work accidents
VELUX roof windows can have a positive CO2 footprint
Life cycle assessments show that, in many cases, a VELUX roof window has a positive CO2
balance in the course of its life cycle. This means that the positive energy contribution of the roof window due to passive solar gain during the use phase exceeds the energy consumption for production, distribution, installation, and maintenance. And if a VELUX energy blind is added, the CO2
savings are improved by 36%..VELUX roof windows can have a positive CO2 FootprintVELUX company CO2 emissions reduced by 29%
