VELUX Group's Director of Sustainable Buildings Lone Feifer talks about the Build for Life Conference and the company's vision for a more sustainable future for the built environment.
We spend approximately 90 per cent of our time indoors. Or, as Lone Feifer, Director of Sustainable Buildings at the VELUX Group puts it: ‘If you are 45 years old, you have spent more than 40 years of your life inside buildings.’ Such a sobering statistic leaves one cold. (If we actually spent more time outside, that is.)
VELUX, a brand that's established an enviable reputation globally as the go-to producer of roof windows and modular skylights, has mobilised, demonstrating its continued commitment to well-being for people and planet, with Feifer leading the charge on sustainable building.
As organiser of the company's inaugural Build for Life online conference – which runs from 15–17 November 2021 – she has brought together industry professionals and thought leaders from around the world to discuss such topics as building affordability, flexibility, quality, the ways that buildings directly impact the environment, communities, and human health and wellbeing.
