• The time for positive change is now

  • Build for Life is an invitation to envision a more sustainable, flexible, and healthy future by rethinking how we build

    We know that the way we build today has an enormous impact on our planet, affecting humanity and the delicate ecosystems that sustain all life on Earth. And, because we are spending 90% of our time indoors, today, buildings impact also our physical and mental health more than ever before.

    At VELUX, we believe that we must actively address the climate and health related challenges of the 21st century and work together with the building industry to help reconnect people and planet through healthier, more sustainable buildings.

  • As a part of our sustainability strategy we have committed to taking measurable steps toward positive change while focusing on how buildings can help to resolve global challenges with sustainable solutions and practical action.

    One way we are doing this is through Build for Life, a pioneering, multi-disciplinary initiative launched in 2021 and created to help connect people and planet through better building design.
