24/01/2022: VELUX Commits to Lifetime Carbon Neutral Goal

Choosing VELUX today can contribute towards leaving a better world for generations to come. The philosophy of VELUX has always been to create a better environment in the homes and offices of customers by bringing in light and air. Now the company has a much more ambitious plan to help improve the world we live in.

By implementing energy saving methods, using sustainable products and packaging as well as helping to maintain forests, VELUX is determined to become a lifetime carbon neutral manufacturer by the company's 100th anniversary in 2041.

What does this mean? What's the difference between just 'Carbon Neutral' and 'Lifetime Carbon Neutral'? It's quite simple really. By working towards 'Lifetime Carbon Neutral', VELUX is not only committed to reducing its carbon footprint in the future, but also to look back over the years and capture the carbon footprint of the company to date. In collaboration with the World Wildlife Fund, VELUX has developed new models for calculating this and the aim is to provide forestry and biodiversity to capture 56M tonnes of carbon. As far as we know, VELUX is the first company in the construction industry, and certainly one of the first companies of any kind to take responsibility for not only its present and future carbon footprint, but to take responsibility for its historical carbon too.

The VELUX Group's Lifetime Carbon Neutral pledge and partnership with WWF have been recognised by the United Nations as a Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) success story and therefore accredited as an SDG Good Practices initiative.

If you are considering rooflights as a way to bring light and air to the environment of your home, talk to us about how this can also help maintain our shared environment for the future, not only by cutting emissions now but also by restoring forests to capture historic emissions too.
