KASTRUP WINDOWS
AND SUSTAINABILITY

ENVIRONMENT, COMPANY & PEOPLE

At Kastrup Windows, we regard sustainability as long-term responsibility for the environment, our company and people. It is all about developing a company that can exist for many years and that can secure jobs for many generations to come. Every day we strive to incorporate sustainability into our products, processes and social responsibility.

Sustainable products

Kastrup’s products make buildings more energy efficient. Building sustainability also means creating value that lasts for decades. Kastrup Windows include the whole life cycle of the product in the development process, taking into account the environment, energy and the lifestyle of tomorrow. With our biometric opening features, the latest security fittings and energy optimised ECLAZ glass, Kastrup is already deploying the latest technology. This enables us to create products that have a longer service life and will not lose value over the years. In the event that our products need to be disposed of at some point in the future, we advise you to hand them in at a recycling station where many of the elements can be recycled.

The many challenges for the future include uncontrolled, rising heating prices and the reduction of unnecessary energy waste. Heating a home is the largest guzzler of energy in residential homes, but here you can save a great deal of money and do something good for the environment. With the triple glazed KASTRUP ENERGY series and the INVI series, you can be sure that your windows will have some of the best energy properties in the industry. All our triple glazing products ensure minimal heat consumption and an improvement in terms of reduced CO2 emissions. It is important to create a product that is sustainable from the outset. That is why we only use slow-growing pinewood from certified forests. All timber is either FSC® or PEFC® certified. All our hardwood comes from environmentally friendly, sustainable forestry as well. At Kastrup we also think about environmentally friendly alternatives to tropical hardwood, so we also offer windows and doors in Kebony.

Sustainable processes

Efficient processes, which focus on minimising waste and increasing productive work, are becoming increasingly important for Kastrup Windows.

Our employees are constantly trained in LEAN techniques and methods. We thereby make sure that we always retain our focus on what is right, while also cutting down on unnecessary resources.

Wherever it is impossible to remove all waste, we have standardised processes to collect the waste and recycle it or dispose of it properly. For example, all our excess composite is collected during the manufacturing process and returned to the supplier to be reused in new window profiles.

Our waste wood is used partly for the manufacture of MDF, our aluminium waste is re-melted and recycled, while all waste glass is turned into new panes.

Ensuring reduced fuel consumption is also hugely important to us. We work with local transport companies, who fill their lorries completely, reducing many ‘empty’ miles. Moreover, our main suppliers are located in the immediate area. They provide flexibility, Danish quality and a short drive to our factories.

In addition to the production processes, our financing processes also create long-term growth. Kastrup Windows reinvests all excess profit in the company, thereby creating the basis for future investments. As part of IFN Holding AG, one of the biggest window companies in Europe, which is family-owned and focusing on sustainable growth, Kastrup Windows has a financially strong business partner.

Social responsibility (CSR)

Kastrup Windows is a family-owned company and hugely successful in the Danish window market. We are convinced that the reason for our success lies in the high level of quality and standards and the spirit of innovation, for which we can thank our employees. There are big plans for the future in terms of continued investment in our two factories in West Jutland and the creation of jobs in the local area.

Unlike many other window suppliers who move their production abroad due to price pressure, Kastrup Windows will continue to develop and manufacture solely in Denmark going forward.

Happy, healthy, satisfied staff are another reason for our success.

Whether an employee is striving to establish a career, has a young family or is on the point of retiring, at Kastrup we always try to help them with individual development programmes and flexible working hours. In addition to our staff, fair, legal cooperation with our customers, suppliers, neighbours and other partners is paramount.

Much of our social responsibility is also about supporting local people. It is the responsibility of companies to promote local clubs and associations, thereby making a contribution to the local community. In addition to supporting both large and small local clubs such as TTH Holstebro and SIK Skive, Kastrup Windows is a member of Code of Care, through which we help unemployed people to find work again.
