Caring for the environment
We believe it is important to look after the climate and the environment. Our timber comes from FSC-certified forests in Sweden, which we then treat with eco friendly products. We recycle waste glass, paint and aluminium and we heat our factories with recycled wood from our production processes. In other words, we produce windows and doors with a clear conscience. Rationel is part of DOVISTA, a group comprising 10 leading window manufacturers in Europe with a common mission to bring natural daylight, fresh air and a better environment into people's everyday lives. A portion of our profits goes to the Villum Foundation, the main shareholder of VKR Holding, which owns the DOVISTA group. Arguably one of Denmark’s most discreet and wealthy environmentalists, the Foundation donates 15 million pounds to environmental and climate projects every year. Together with several other foundations associated with the VKR Group, it funds nonprofit scientific, cultural, artistic and social initiatives.
