Hydro and the VELUX Group have agreed to a joint target to reduce the amount of CO2 emitted per kilo of aluminium, contributing to the VELUX Group goal to halve its value chain emissions by 2030. The partnership agreement target is for VELUX to reach a level below 2.0 kg carbon emitted per kilogram of aluminium by 2030. This target includes the entire aluminium value chain and is based on the average of all the extruded aluminium components that Hydro delivers to VELUX.Already by the end of 2022, VELUX says the partnership is expected to result in a 15,000-20,000 tonne carbon abatement for the roof window manufacturer, where more than 94% of its carbon footprint stems from materials used in its products.By using the low-carbon products Hydro REDUXA and Hydro CIRCAL, carbon emissions per kilo of aluminium used in the manufacturing of VELUX roof windows, flat-roof windows and accessories (shutters and blinds) will be reduced.Hydro REDUXA is made using renewable energy sources from water, wind, and solar, as well as hyper-efficient electrolysis technology. Hydro CIRCAL is made with a guaranteed minimum of 75% recycled, post-consumer aluminium scrap. Hydro REDUXA and Hydro CIRCAL emit 4.0 kg and 2.3 kg CO2 per kilo of aluminium, respectively.VELUX Group and Hydro have agreed to work further together to optimize carbon emission reductions in aluminium. As part of this work, Hydro will apply technologies defined in its technology roadmap to zero-emission aluminium production.For more than 80 years, the VELUX Group has created better living environments for people around the world – making the most of daylight and fresh air through the roof. Its product program includes roof windows and modular skylights, decorative blinds, sun screening products and roller shutters, as well as installation and smart home solutions.
