People-Planet-Purpose: VolkerHighways’ new sustainability framework

Following the launch of VolkerWessels UK’s People-Planet-Purpose sustainability framework last year, VolkerHighways is delighted to share its business-specific framework, which sets its own targets and goals, to help reduce the business’ environmental impact.

People-Planet-Purpose builds on excellent foundations and unlocks VolkerHighways’ desire to take bold action, to balance the needs of the environment and society, while continuing to grow economically.

The framework commits the business to a ‘Decade of Action’ and sets a flexible, agile, and empowering structure, for the coming years. It also conveys the collective ambitions and achievements of VolkerHighways and its stakeholders.

Each of the People-Planet-Purpose pillars in VolkerHighways’ framework has three themes and a total of 32 high level metrics, to allow the business to measure and monitor performance.

The themes are:

People – putting people at the heart of our approach Planet – protecting and enhancing our natural environment Purpose – being a trusted, forward thinking and
business of choice by delivering long-term social value
Safety and wellbeing Climate, energy and emissions Education and employability
Equality, diversity and inclusion Responsible management of the environment Charity, volunteering and community engagement
Empowering sustainable leaders Circular economy Sustainable supply chain and ethical procurement
