We recognise the importance of sustainable forest management as part of our efforts to protect the environment, ensure biodiversity, tackle climate change and protect the rights of local communities in forested areas.
All VELUX windows are manufactured at our own factories. All factories in Europe are FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and/or PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) certified. Our factories in the USA and China are not PEFC or FSC certified, but use wood from controlled sources.
The remaining 2% of wood is sourced as “controlled” wood according to FSC. This means that the origin of the wood is known and that it comes from non-controversial and legal sources.
All VELUX windows produced in Europe for the European market fulfil the requirements of the EU Timber Regulation.
