VGC Group is committed to operate a formal energy management system (EnMS) to the requirements of the International Standard ISO 50001:2018.

This allows us to continually improve the energy and carbon performance of our offices and sites through monitoring, setting objectives and targets, training and communication.

The VGC EnMS scope covers all our energy use to deliver contracts, services and personnel to the construction and rail industries, including the operation of support offices, depots and transportation.

To deliver this, we will provide the resources and measured information needed to achieve agreed objectives and targets.

We will meet our energy management legal requirements, as well as other related requirements we subscribe to.

We will agree and review short, medium and long-term energy objectives and targets through:

  • committed organisational resources to improve energy management.
  • adopting a method of continual improvement to increase energy efficiency, use and consumption.
  • supporting the procurement of energy efficient products and services that impact our energy performance
  • supporting design activities that consider improvement of energy performance.

The energy management system will be documented and communicated to all levels of VGC Group staff.

This policy will be formally reviewed annually and updated as required.
