VLS Cares was created from our commitment to Sustainability and born from our Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) pledge. The program will promote everything we do everyday to support the environment, the communities that we work in, and the teammates that we work with.
Three committees were created to tackle one of the pillars of sustainability. Our committees represent all – race, religion, age, sex, gender, disability, culture, etc.
Companies have always had an environmental impact, and it was not until more recently that companies started doing something about it. The trailblazing companies are those that are leaders in sustainable development, tackling tough issues like reducing their carbon footprints, and promoting zero-waste initiatives.
A sustainable business should have the support and approval of the community it operates in. Community involvement is a fantastic opportunity to share our mission, promote our services, and communicate our values. These external engagements promote partnership, build trusting relationships, and can truly make an impact for those that need it.
Transformation. For VLS that one simple word captures our journey over the last year. Transforming our organization through growth, while continuing to focus on our sustainability and people initiatives. Our efforts to drive VLS’ leadership on environmental, social and governance (ESG) continue to be a top priority across the entire organization.
Our ESG commitment mirrors our mission statement: “Delivering innovative environmental solutions that support our client’s sustainability goals.” Our 1,000+ employees live our mission and continuously identify opportunities for efficiencies and improvements re-imagining what our company and our world could look like tomorrow.
Our expanded geographical presence and addition of processing capabilities have expanded our sphere of sustainability impact, helping us serve more clients, more industries, and solve a wider variety of environmental problems with our innovative solutions.
We have integrated sustainability into our new Mission statement and remain committed as ever to our ESG focus areas.
In fulfilling this commitment, we aim to abide by the following principles in recognition of our responsibilities toward sound environmental practices:
Management will continue to be guided and motivated by this policy, and with the cooperation of all employees, will do our part to help provide and maintain an environmentally safe workplace.
