  • Addressing Climate Change

    We recognize the urgent need to address climate change and are taking bold steps to do our part. Our current targets include eliminating all Scope 1 emissions by the end of 2024 and reducing Scope 2 emissions by at least 10% in 2023. But we're not stopping there. As part of our commitment to reach Net Zero by 2040, we will continue to build future goals into our targets to drive progress even further. This includes exploring renewable energy sources and finding ways to reduce our carbon footprint across all operations. 

Promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion

We believe that fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is key to creating a productive and innovative workplace. That's why we have set targets for balanced gender diversity across all levels of the company. We will continue to find ways to improve our DEI initiatives, such as increasing our engagement with underrepresented communities and implementing programs to support the professional development of our diverse workforce

Innovating Circular economy

At Volk, we see the circular economy as a unique opportunity to drive innovation and unlock economic benefits. That’s why we have set ambitious targets to increase our circularity, such as maximizing the reuse, repurpose, and recycling of on-site waste in 2023, and transitioning to 100% recyclable packaging by 2024. But we're constantly seeking new ways to reduce waste and increase sustainability. As part of this ongoing commitment, we plan to explore new recycling and repurposing technologies and develop employee programs to drive innovation and engagement.
