Our climate mission

For a sustainable energy future.

Through innovative spirit and technical progress
we are creating a sustainable future together.

Vision

Imagine a world in which all people are mindful of their environment and through innovation only consume as much energy as they need for their well-being. That‘s what vilisto stands for.

Mission

vilisto is committed to a sustainable future through responsible action. Through innovation and technical advances, we enable effortless energy savings considering all user needs.

Already 811 tons of CO2 saved!

This is equivalent to 101 circumnavigations of the earth with an average gasoline car.

Our contribution to climate protection.

Simply save energy and CO2

With our digital heat management & self-learning thermostats we save companies and municipalities up to 32% heating energy and CO2 emissions. Through continuous further developments, this factor will increase in the future.

We say: CO2 bye-bye!

At the moment 30% of the emissions in Germany are caused by the operation of buildings. Thereby, 70% of the final energy consumption is due to room heat. Paradox: Although rooms are not used up to 80% of the time, they are heated non-stop. This is where we come in.

An enormous savings potential for office buildings & public facilities

The potential for CO2 savings in the building sector through solutions like ours is huge. According to dena, there are an estimated 2.7 million heated non-residential buildings in Germany. In the office buildings and public and educational facilities sectors, the potential savings amount to about 5 million tons of CO2, and in Europe as a whole, as much as about 21 million tons of CO2 per year.

On the way to climate neutrality.

Already low CO2 balance

The first step towards climate neutrality is the reduction of avoidable greenhouse gas emissions. Through the use of our thermostats in our rooms, the use of green electricity, our business account with a sustainable bank, as well as production in the area around Hamburg, we have already been able to achieve a low CO2 balance.

Together with ConClimate, we balanced our business activities and the associated emissions, using the internationally recognized Greenhouse Gas Protocol. For 2020, we have got a total corporate carbon footprint of 19.6t/year.

CO2 compensation through climate protection project

To offset our footprint, we support a compensation project in the area of forest protection in Portel/Brazil. The project protects 3,000 hectares of land annually from deforestation for soy cultivation or other agricultural operations.

For a future worth living on our planet

Sustainability has played a central role ever since we were founded. We base our activities on this matter on the principle of continuous improvement and thus try to make not only our CO2 emissions but also our daily activities more and more sustainable.

By Leaders for Climate Action

This is how we do business sustainably.

Selecting our suppliers

When selecting suppliers, we consider not only economic factors but also environmental and social aspects. Take transport routes, for example: Here we carefully weigh up whether we work with suppliers from Europe or overseas.

We attach great importance to a trusting relationship with our suppliers. It is important to us that this respectful relationship is also lived by our suppliers.

Transparency in the supply chain

Our product is an in-house development with patented technology – made in Germany. Our manufacturing service provider for the electronic components is based in the Hamburg area. The components we purchase are also largely sourced from Germany.

In order to be able to guarantee environmental friendliness and social compatibility along the entire value chain, we are continuously working to further optimize our transparency.
