at Valcon

Valcon’s core mission is to ensure that our clients are in their best possible shape and fully prepared for the future.

This mindset also directs our approach to sustainability, ensuring that the sustainability challenges of not only our clients, but also our own business, are central to our transformations and solutions.

Committed to making change

We are dedicated to assisting organisations in overcoming challenges on their path to sustainability. We hold the conviction that to effect change, one must lead it. This is why our team is at the forefront of driving Valcon towards sustainability.

We champion collaboration beyond all boundaries and have engaged in global initiatives to foster enduring sustainable transformation.

United Nations Global Compact

Since 2022, we have been members of the UNGC and remain deeply dedicated to adhering to the UNGC’s Ten Principles for responsible business practices. Valcon reports annually on our progress through the Communication on Progress (CoP). The CoP questionnaire assesses our performance in five key areas: governance, human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption, aligning with the UNGC Ten Principles. As part of our commitment, Valcon UK has joined the Climate Ambition Accelerator to equip ourselves with the necessary knowledge and skills. This initiative helps us accelerate our journey towards setting science-based emissions reduction targets in line with the 1.5°C pathway, aiming for net-zero emissions by 2050.

Volunteering at Valcon

We believe in giving back, whether through utilising our skills and knowledge or by getting hands-on. We want to make a positive impact on our communities and the environment.

We encourage our people to participate in our environmental and community service programmes, offering a range of activities such as locating oil spills through satellite imaging with knowledge from our data capability or making elderly homes more energy efficient.

Valcon supports the Electric Dreams Car Scheme provided by Octopus EV.

The scheme allows Valcon employees who have completed their probationary period, to get a new car through salary sacrifice and includes several optional extras in terms of breakdown cover, servicing, MOT, repairs, tax and additional discounts where applicable.

Sustainable procurement

Sustainable procurement is a key component of Valcon’s commitment to reducing our environmental impact. Our sustainable procurement policy governs operations in the entire Valcon group.

It is Valcon’s ambition to reduce emissions by 5% per FTE per annum. With our sustainable procurement policy, we aim to:

  • Reduce our carbon footprint and monitor our supply in terms of energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions
  • Reduce waste and disposal in our facilities, canteen and dining room and sort our waste according to local regulations
  • Minimise the environmental impact of travel and commuting in service by promoting digital alternatives and environmentally friendly travel options
  • Choose suppliers who align with our sustainability conditions
