At Altaterra we make roof windows affordable and have been successfully doing so for 20 years. We also care about the impact our activities have on the environment, as well as our carbon footprint and our social responsibilities.

Whilst we know that individual companies alone cannot tackle climate change, we do believe that if an entire industry collaborates, we can make a difference. Therefore, it is our intention to create a sustainable business that is carbon neutral by 2030*

*we are committed to reducing our operational emissions by 100% (Scope 1 & 2) and reducing emissions across value chain by 50% (Scope 3) by 2030.

Altaterra is part of the VELUX Group yet operates as a separate independent entity. The two companies have complementary identities and goals, that meet the needs of different market segments. VELUX Group manufactures and supplies Altaterra products and they are incorporated in the Group’s 2030 sustainability targets.

Commitment to sustainable
development goals

Our products and solutions contribute to health and well-being in buildings. We place ‘products that are useful
to society’ at the core
of our strategy.

We are executing projects which lead to energy efficiency improvements in our manufacturing and office facilities, and replacing fossil-based energy sources with renewables. We also aim to minimise any negative impact on environment related to the waste from our own operations by ensuring proper on-site waste management

We are stepping up to address climate change by setting ambitious carbon reduction targets.

We are moving to a single material recyclable zero-plastic packaginging. The materials we use for the product packaging are responsibly sourced paper and cardboard.
