VGC Value – “We deliver on our promises” – We innovate


We run our business in an ethical, responsible and sustainable manner and it is our goal to manage and reduce the environmental or carbon impacts that arise as a result of our activities. We promote a culture of continual improvement by setting strategic objectives, seeking opportunities and developing action plans for improvements which includes targets for removing carbon from our activities while allowing us to continue to develop our business without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.


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, and try to exceed our energy management legal requirements.

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 by lower energy 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.
  • Review data and 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.
