Core values

Our core values

There are three core values that underlie everything we do at VolkerWessels: safety, sustainability and integrity. These values apply always and everywhere, from the boardroom to the construction site. They form our license to operate.



Together with our clients and partners, it is our ambition to build a healthy living environment. That's why we have set goals, why we are taking measures to achieve operating emission-free by 2030, and why we are focusing on setting goals to reduce emissions in the chain for the upcoming year. This requires a sustainable way of thinking from our employees and our partners, with an eye for future generations.

Our safety culture focuses on creating a natural sense of responsibility for everyone involved in our work. Together, we ensure that our own and temporary employees and those of our subcontractors return home safely. We make no concessions to working safely. Be Alert, Safety First!


Integrity is non-negotiable at VolkerWessels. Acting with integrity is fundamental to everything we do and requires our constant attention. Our approach to integrity, in addition to our awareness campaigns, is based on three pillars; the VolkerWessels Code of Conduct, the Guiding Principles for the Contracting Construction Company and the Regulation on Reporting Procedure on Handling a Suspicion of a Malpractice (Confidentiality Line).
