VELUX Sustainability Strategy to capture our historic CO2 emissions

Together with WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature), we are capturing our historical C02 emissions through forest conservation. We will also reduce our future carbon emissions from our entire value chain in line with the Paris Agreement’s 1.5˚C reduction target.

We call this Lifetime Carbon Neutral.

Stepping out of our carbon zone

David Briggs

CEO of the VELUX Group

We are committed to become Lifetime Carbon Neutral by 2041, by capturing 100 years of CO2 emissions and reducing our future carbon footprint.

How do we do this?

By investing in forest conservation projects from 2020-2041, we will be capturing the equivalent of the VELUX Group’s total organisational carbon footprint over our 100-year lifetime.

Forest projects with WWF on restoring and conserving forests to capture carbon

Why forest projects with WWF?

Restoring and conserving forests are efficient ways to capture carbon from the air and to safeguard biodiversity globally. WWF knows where new trees are needed and where old should be preserved.

VELUX commit to reduce our future emissions to meet the Paris Agreement 1.5°C path

Why the 1.5°C reduction target?

Climate science shows it is necessary to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, so we commit to reduce our future emissions to meet this target and lead the change in global corporate climate action. The Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi) has approved our targets aligned with the Paris Agreement 1.5°C path.
