Environment

As a construction and design team Voltcom takes the environmental impact into account by continuously improving its eco-friendly performance, making it a key priority from the very earliest stages of all project planning, right through to the completion of the construction

Environmental Performance

Voltcom recognises that good environmental management is achieved through knowledgeable and appropriately trained staff.
Voltcom's Group of Companies maintains compliance with the relevant applicable environmental legislation through a variety of regions.
Voltcom's targets are realistic and its understanding, knowledge and planning is continually improving its environmental performance.

Biodiversity

The Voltcom Group has made the commitment throughout its business, to clear, long-term outcome-orientated targets that are strategised by a number of international communities.

Voltcom considers biodiversity to be a responsibility for all, from the local community, working along the chain to primary influential focuses by governments and all national/regional organisations.

Sustainability

Voltcom is committed to acting in a social and environmentally responsible manner, which is more than just an ethical duty for any company; it directly affects the bottom-line.

With rising energy and waste costs, tougher environmental legislation and higher stakeholder expectations, organisations are increasingly focusing their attention on improving production practices, to both enhance performance and demonstrate responsible behaviour.

This will be achieved by encouraging innovation, increasing investment and giving a greater opportunity to open up new markets.

 

Voltcom’s strategy focuses on the need to enable, encourage and engage people and communities in the move toward sustainability.
