VolkerWessels UK is committed to maintaining the highest of standards throughout our business activities and we recognise that we have a responsibility to our people and the communities in which we work. We work with our supply chain and partners to develop innovations in our working practices and products used, which result in benefits to the environment. Our corporate responsibility vision focuses on the four key areas of Marketplace, Workplace, Environment and Community. These four elements are subdivided into themes, which act as objectives against which we monitor our performance. The measures and actions within our CR programme are applicable to all operating companies, essentially as a common set of objectives, and a means of internal benchmarking.

All companies set additional measures and actions according to the specific nature of their activities. Our commitment is reflected through our actions and within our comprehensive suite of corporate policies, processes and procedures. Our decision making is based upon our corporate values, compliance with legal requirements and our respect for people, communities, and the environment.
