Our purpose of delivering healthy indoor air, sustainably, is the foundation for our approach to sustainability.
At Volution, we know we have a role to play in the future of our planet. Delivering healthy indoor air, sustainably, we want to accelerate a low-carbon future with the health and wellbeing of people and the planet at its core. We achieve this by manufacturing energy efficient ventilation products and solutions that protect the environment and people.
Our commitment to sustainability is instilled across our entire company and we are constantly challenging our approach to the manufacturing and supply of products to minimise our impact on the environment. The relationships we build with our employees, communities and customers are essential to help us deliver our ambitions.
Embedding these values across our organisation is critical to helping us attract, develop and retain the best talent within our organisation.
Our Sustainability strategy
To help us fulfil our ambitions we have defined a new sustainability strategy. This year we have reviewed the material issues that impact our sustainability and prioritised them around the Company’s and stakeholders’ needs. These include feedback from our stakeholders. These have then been defined in 3 focus areas: product, planet and people. Within each of these areas we have new initiatives and improvement plans. We have aligned our strategy to the United Nations Sustainability goals which are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.

Managing our strategy – being a responsible business
We are committed to operating in a manner that protects human rights, provides real opportunities for our employees, protects the environment and makes a positive contribution to the community.
We embrace a culture of continual improvement in all aspects of our business. We aim to understand and respond to the needs of employees, customers, suppliers, shareholders, the communities in which we work and wider society.
As part of our commitment to sustainability we aim to align our business values, purpose and strategy with the needs of our stakeholders, whilst embedding such responsible and ethical principles into everything we do.
As an international organisation with an international supply chain, we take seriously the impact we have in the places where we do business.
Volution’s Board of Directors is ultimately responsible for our Environmental and Social strategy. The board works with our executive team to identify the issues that are most pertinent to Volution and which help evolve our purpose and our business model and we continually review our governance structure to ensure the correct skills are present. Our governance model at a local individual company level then develops actions and initiatives which help drive the deliverables of our strategy. Our local Managing Directors are responsible for implementing and delivering policy and report their progress to the executive team.
Supporting the Sustainable Development Goals
The SDGs embrace a universal approach to the sustainable development agenda. They define global sustainable development priorities and aspirations for 2030 and seek to mobilise global efforts around a common set of goals and targets.
We have aligned our sustainability strategy to the SDGs. Six goals have been identified that complement Volution’s sustainability ambitions, and are focused on where we have the biggest economic, environmental, social and governance impact, to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
