Our core values

Sustainability, Integrity & Safety


The issues of sustainability and quality of the living environment are so intertwined that it makes no sense to address them separately. We combine these challenges and see them as an opportunity for innovations with great social added value. This makes it easier to come up with large-scale solutions for climate adaptation, energy transition and circular construction.

We are convinced that with our diverse portfolio of projects, our mix of activities in the four home markets and our base of many small projects, we can make a major contribution to society. To further improve performance in our markets, we are focusing on four strategic priorities, as outlined below. In addition to these core priorities, risk management and governance are central to our strategy.

1. Client-oriented business model

  • Our mostly local companies are close to the customers and we tailor our offerings to the needs and social tasks of our customers
  • Successful delivery of (local) projects by our companies
  • Complemented by large multidisciplinary projects

2. Preferred employer

  • Our employees are the foundation of our organization
  • Be and remain preferred employer and find and retain new talent
  • Focus on leadership, continuous employee development and transparent cooperation

3. Operational excellence

  • We achieve this by:
    • Continuous development of our organization

Risk Management & Governance

VolkerWessels' risk management and governance processes ensure that the companies take a disciplined approach to executing projects based on careful budgeting and project selection.

In this regard, contract management is an increasingly important part of our success.
