March 26, 2014 /3BL Media/ - The VELUX Group just published their Corporate Responsibility report for 2013. The report is based on the VELUX Group’s objective to be a model company that works with products useful to society and that treats its customers, suppliers, employees and shareholders better than most other companies. The report is solely published online at crreport.velux.com.

The main results in 2013 are:

  • VELUX roof windows have a positive CO2 footprint
    In 2013, the VELUX Group published Life Cycle Assessments for Northern Europe of core products. These analyses show that a VELUX roof window saves more CO2 in its lifetime than it costs to produce, use and dispose.
  • The VELUX Group had fewer and less serious accidents
    In 2013, the VELUX Group recorded 2.4 accidents per 1 million working hours, and absence resulting from accidents was 0.3 hours per 1,000 working hours. A historical low number of both accidents and absence.
  • The VELUX Group reduce their own CO2 emissions by 19%
    In 2013, the VELUX Group reduced their own CO2 emissions by 19% compared to 2007 baseline figures. The VELUX Group 2020 objective is to achieve 50% reduction.
  • 158 million Euro given back to society
    In 2013, THE VELUX FOUNDATIONS – VILLUM FONDEN and VELUX FONDEN – made donations of 158 million Euros to natural sciences, environment, social and cultural purposes, the humanities and research into gerontology and ophthalmology in Europe.

The VELUX Group creates better living environments with daylight and fresh air through the roof. The VELUX product programme contains a wide range of roof windows and skylights, solutions for flat roofs, sun screening, roller shutters, installation products and products for remote control.
