How Marie pushes sustainability to the next level

It wasn’t in the cards that a Master in Forest and Nature Management would get the job that required an engineer. But that did not hold Marie Stenild back when she applied for the job at VELUX. And with a goal to have a more sustainable production, she was the perfect match for VELUX.

“What attracted me was actually several things. First of all, VELUX is an international organisation, which means that the work we do here, has a large impact – it really matters when we change a small thing for the better. But it was the challenger-mentality in an otherwise conservative industry that really appealed to me”, Marie states.

She explains how change, challenges and new ideas are welcome at VELUX, and that’s exactly the kind of mindset that is needed to constantly innovate and to continue the path towards a more sustainable future – for the planet and for VELUX as a company.

But sustainability isn’t everything. For Marie the key is circularity – that nothing must go to waste. And even though she doesn’t like to talk much about herself, it is something that she is proud to have helped put on the agenda at VELUX. “Sustainability is just one aspect, but in order to achieve that we have to be more circular and make sure that we make the most out of everything and reuse what we can. In my work it has a lot to do with the materials we work with, but there is also the idea of circularity when it comes to knowledge, expertise and ideas here at VELUX – nothing should be wasted there either”, she says.

With Marie’s strong passion for nature, the best thing is without a doubt that her work isn’t just fancy presentations, big words and glittering reports, but a tangible effort we can see and feel out there, in the real world around us.

VELUX is an international organisation, which means that the work we do here, has a large impact – it really matters when we change a small thing for the better.
