Corporate Social Responsibility at VRR

At VRR, we know that meeting our legal requirements is only half the story. We also want to make a positive social impact. So we look continuously for ways to make a genuine difference. To invest in environmental stewardship. This is what we are doing:

    

  • Sustainable business practices
    • adapting our manufacturing processes and purchasing methods to reduce our emissions to a minimum
    • minimising our use of construction materials to reduce wastage and recycle where possible
    • ensuring our products comply with REACH (a European Union regulation that addresses the production and use of chemical substances and their potential impact on both human health and the environment)
    • minimising the weight of our products in order to minimise the carbon footprint of our customers
    • splitting waste into material streams for recycling purposes
  • Responsible workplace & travel conditions
    • investing in energy neutral offices and factory facilities by installing energy harvesting systems, including LED lights and the enhanced insulation of the entire building
    • ensuring our offices and production facilities comply with all the QA requirements for work & health safety
    • minimising staff travel at home and abroad to minimise our carbon footprint, facilitated by our investment in modern communication systems such as videoconferencing
    • driving environmentally-friendly cars
