CSR and sustainability are deeply ingrained in the VELUX way of doing business and founded in our Model Company Objective. We wish to design and develop products useful to society and behave responsibly towards all our stakeholders. We continuously seek to minimise our footprint in the way we source, manufacture and sell our products. We are aware that our sustainability efforts go beyond our own activities and take a responsible approach throughout the entire supply chain.
We work to create sustainable, healthy and affordable buildings that balance care for people and planet. We seek to achieve this by putting people first in our product development and by contributing to the creation of new building concepts that support health and well-being in buildings. We reach out to building owners, the building community and policy-makers to set new standards for active buildings with focus on daylight, fresh air and high energy efficiency.
Our Sustainability Report 2017 is structured around four focus areas, where we as a production company must take special responsibility in order to limit the company’s impact on climate and environment, achieve high resource efficiency, offer safe and healthy work conditions and build a resilient framework for sustainable sourcing throughout the value chain.
