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 a climate-neutral 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 has been climate-neutral within its own area of business responsibility since 2020 (Scopes 1 and 2).
The Vaillant Group is internationally active in the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning technology sector. The headquarters of the family business, founded in 1874, is in Remscheid. It develops and produces customised products and systems, as well as providing services for a comfortable living environment. The Vaillant Group is the world market leader in the field of central heating units. Special focus is placed on the use of renewable energies to supply buildings with heat and hot water.
