Corporate Social Responsibility

We are securing a more sustainable future through our products, supply chain, company and people. 

Our vision for a sustainable future

Our smart products and services help save energy and make people’s lives easier. We believe performance, efficiency and care for the environment can go hand in hand. From the sourcing of materials to manufacturing of our products, distribution, installation and everyday use – we apply sustainable principles every step of the way.

This allows us to provide products and services that are affordable, high quality and have low impact on the environment.
