The global population will reach 10 billion by 2050, with seven billion expected to live in cities. Living sustainably is one of the greatest challenges facing city dwellers, authorities and politicians today. As buildings account for 40% of all energy consumption in Europe, they can play an important role in reducing the world’s energy consumption.

In 2009, the VELUX Group initiated the ‘Model Home 2020’ project to show that it is possible to build sustainable buildings for the future – today. Six full-scale demonstration buildings were set up in Europe by 2011. And today, we have more than 20 demonstration buildings around the world, where people live, work, and go to school – proving that energy efficiency and quality of life can go hand in hand.

Two new product ranges were launched in 2012

Our New Generation of roof windows with improved energy balance and VELUX Modular Skylights – a completely new business area that focuses on bringing daylight and fresh air into commercial buildings - represent our largest investment to date and reflect our commitment to solving global challenges.

Our 75th Anniversary 

In 2016, the VELUX Group celebrated 75 years of innovation and dedication to bring daylight and fresh air into people's lives. Today, we are proud to offer a range of products and solutions that contribute to quality of life - for people in their homes and workplaces as well as supporting better learning for kids in school.
