Pointing the way to a green future

Taking care of a better climate. Inside each home and the world around it.

That is our corporate vision. With highly efficient technology and comprehensive services, we enable our customers to heat in an energy-saving and eco-friendly manner. We embody sustainability – for our customers, society and our company.

Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning technology is one of the biggest factors in the energy transition. In the European Union alone, more than 40 per cent of primary energy is used in the buildings sector. Furthermore, a large proportion of installed heating equipment is no longer up to date. Intelligent products and solutions for heating and the supply of hot water are the key to the decarbonisation of the buildings sector.

The Vaillant Group takes care of a better climate not only for its customers, but also within the company. As part of its SEEDS sustainability programme, the Vaillant Group has developed an ambitious climate strategy and fully offsets its CO2 emissions (Scopes 1 and 2).
