Houston, TX  –  VLS Environmental Solutions is thrilled to announce the launch of its 2023 Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Report, marking a significant stride in our commitment to sustainability and responsible business operations. In a year of transformation, underpinned by new ownership, the introduction of innovative business lines, and expanded operational scope, we solidified our dedication to health, safety, and making a meaningful impact on the communities and environments we touch. Brian Brantley, General Counsel and Head of ESG, reflects on this pivotal time, “The publication of our 2023 ESG Report mirrors a crucial phase of evolution for VLS, underlining our commitment to growth that deeply resonates with our core values of Safety, Partnerships, Integrity, Innovation, and our Employees. It represents a harmonious alignment of our actions with the environmental, social, and governance realms crucial to our stakeholders.”

From January 1, 2023, to December 31, 2023, the detailed account showcases our transparent and strategic approach toward fostering a sustainable future.

John Magee, President & CEO, shared his enthusiasm, “The progress and the advancements within our ESG program this year have been incredible, marking a significant leap in addressing the sustainability challenges that lie ahead.” The past year has seen VLS deepen its commitment through strategic reassessments, leading to broadened capabilities in hazardous waste management, and a fortified grasp on our sustainability goals amidst our growth.

Corinna Carbone-Stephens, Chief People Officer, highlighted the importance of our workforce in this journey, “In transitioning to the People and Culture department from HR, we’ve taken a giant leap towards a more inclusive, diverse, and supportive workplace.
