A partnership connecting the past and the future

How we act in the next 10-20 years will determine the future for all life on earth. The climate is changing rapidly, and nature - that we and all life depend upon - is being lost. 

At the VELUX Group, we believe that all actors in society have a responsibility to do their utmost to counter these devastating trends, not least businesses like our own. With our Sustainability commitment, it is our aim to take this responsibility seriously by pioneering climate and nature action.

We have developed a new concept for corporate action called Lifetime Carbon Neutral. With this commitment, we will take responsibility for both our historical CO2 debt and our future CO2 emissions by becoming Lifetime Carbon Neutral by 2041 – at our 100-year anniversary. We will work intensively to reduce our future carbon footprint from our operations and entire value chain, as well as to capture our historical carbon footprint dating back to our foundation in 1941.

Only by combining the past and the future, will we achieve our goal, with the help of our dedicated colleagues, suppliers, and partners.

Passionate about the VELUX Group’s commitment to become Lifetime Carbon Neutral by 2041, Vice President of External Relations & Sustainability Ingrid Reumert has been one of the driving forces behind the sustainability commitment and the 20-year partnership with WWF. It is because of colleagues like her that the VELUX Group can play a role in building a more sustainable future.

The VELUX Group is part of VKR Holding, a limited company wholly owned by VILLUM FONDEN (one of THE VELUX FOUNDATIONS) and the founder’s family. Though the foundations operate independently, this unique form of ownership plays an important role for the VELUX Group, as it ensures sustainable long-term thinking and enables us to make a positive contribution to the communities we serve.
