Through new partnerships with Novelis, Hydro and BayWa, the VELUX Group has upgraded its Net Zero commitments, contributing to the reduction of emissions in the corporate value chain and the decarbonization of its own operations,
The VELUX Group has signed three new partnership agreements:
- Using low-carbon Hydro Aluminium, the carbon emissions per kilogram of aluminum used in the production of VELUX windows, shutters and blinds are significantly reduced.
- Thanks to a partnership with Novelis, the world's largest aluminum recycler, the aluminum used to clad VELUX skylights will contain up to 70% recycled material.
- In order to supply its European operations with green energy by 2024, the VELUX Group has commissioned BayWa r.e. to build two solar parks, the first so-called symbiosis of solar power plants in Spain to integrate agriculture, biodiversity and community with renewable energy production.
This year, the United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP27, was held in Egypt, where the VELUX Group participated and demonstrated how the construction industry can move the Paris Agreement forward.
According to the UN, we are in the decade of action: the era of recalibrating planning and production is over, we must make a difference now, as our actions in the coming years will determine our future on the planet. The VELUX Group has already been actively seeking solutions to make its entire chain sustainable and reduce its carbon footprint in recent years. The results so far show that large companies must also do their part to change their partners' attitudes towards sustainability.
The VELUX Group is therefore committed to reducing the carbon footprint not only of its products but also of its value chain, with only 6% of its carbon footprint coming from its products and 94% from its suppliers. The VELUX Group believes that to make a real difference, sustainability plans need to cover the entire chain, the company’s statement says.
