Environmental, Social and Governance Creating Sustainable Solutions To Meet The Changing Needs Of Our Customers
As a leader in the waste and industrial services industries, VLS continues to enact change within our community at large. VLS’ passion for sustainability and commitment to transparency can be found in our processes and practices across the enterprise. We have created this part of our website to showcase our sustainability strategy that was introduced in 2020. This site reflects how our sharing of best practices yields consistent and effective programs and processes across our business for future opportunities and sustainable economic growth.
We are pleased to share our 2022 findings which include our acquisitions which have increased our sustainability methods for hazardous waste processing while expanding our marine services upstream into the Mississippi River. The data found on these pages summarizes our performance and metrics for relevant topics per the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board’s (SASB) Waste Management Framework. The content of these pages was provided by VLS managers and subject matter experts, approved by executive leaders and reviewed by the VLS Board of Directors. We invite you to read and learn more about the actions we are taking to build a better tomorrow together.
