Shaping a Greener Future
We have worked hard to create a model Environmental and Energy Group, that will play a leading role in national and international sustainable development and innovation, while prioritising social and environmental responsibility.
Our strategy, corporate governance, community support and high environmental standards (offsetting our CO2 emissions, zero – waste approach), constitute proof of our Group’s commitment to Sustainable Development and dynamic contribution to the development of a circular economy.
In compliance with the requirements of the Paris Agreement and the European Green Deal, the Group has set out strong foundations in its sustainability plan that will lead to the achievement of the national and global SDGs for 2030 and 2050.
Our Group goes beyond the implementation of sustainable practices in its own policies and procedures, influencing all parties and partners involved in its activities, with the ultimate goal of raising standards of sustainability overall.
Developing its strategic business plan in accordance with ESG principles, V Group has invested in zero waste research and development, the construction of modern waste – processing facilities, innovative engineering and RES project developments, employee progression, initiatives related to local community support and enrichment, incorporating ethical conduct and transparency across all organisational levels.
Pioneering Sustainable Solutions for a Cleaner Planet
Reducing our environmental impact is at the core of our corporate strategy and by prioritizing our environmental footprint, we recognize the urgent need to address climate change and its impact on our planet.
Since 2015, our Group calculates the carbon footprint of all its activities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, offsets remaining emissions through reliable carbon offset programs and invests in environmental projects that promote carbon sequestration, renewable energy sources and sustainable development.
The measurement and offsetting of emissions cover both direct and indirect emissions and are part of the Kyoto Protocol mechanism. The calculations are certified on an annual basis through our collaboration with a recognized entity.
Leading the Change towards Zero-Carbon Balance
First in our industry to achieve a zero-carbon balance, we plan to further reduce both direct and indirect CO2 emissions (tn CO2/million €) from our operations, reflecting our management’s commitment to environmental protection.
We adopt environmentally responsible practices, investments in innovative technologies, strengthening environmental awareness and responsibility among employees and partners and continuous improvement of performance.
All efforts are monitored and developed through an Environmental Management System implemented across all activities and facilities of the Group, certified to ISO 14001 and EMAS standards.

We are at the forefront of embracing digital transformation and a paperless environment to enhance our operations and deliver exceptional value to our clients.
