Social impact and sponsorships

As one of the largest construction companies in the Netherlands, there is almost no province, municipality, city or village where VolkerWessels does not play a role in shaping the living environment. But besides our work, our 130 local companies and 17,000 colleagues are also at the center of society. Together we try to make the world a little more beautiful, stronger and future-proof every day, especially for future generations.

This vision is reflected in our primary processes and, for example, through our Emission Free2030 climate program, but also through initiatives and partnerships that have social value for us. For example, we dedicate ourselves to (vulnerable) children by making birthdays possible together with Stichting Jarige Job, or by constructing Tiny Forests in schoolyards together with IVN Natuureducatie. At the local level, we also support large and small initiatives (suggested by employees through our internal channels) that contribute to a sustainable and healthy society.  

We also use our partnerships to help young people develop their talents and pursue their dreams, as we do with our own VolkerWessels Cycling Team. In addition, partnerships help us organize special activities and show colleagues, future colleagues and the general public what we have to offer, such as during the Dutch Grand Prix in Zandvoort.

VolkerWessels Cycling Team

VolkerWessels Cycling Team

Racing for the win as a team! The VolkerWessels Cycling Team consists of a group of talented and ambitious riders who, together with a professional support team, compete for profits at home and abroad. From 2024, the VolkerWessels Cycling Team will consist of a successful women's team in addition to the men's team.

VolkerWessels stands for talent development and we are therefore making every effort to realize the sporting ambitions of our riders. Moreover, through sustainable cooperation with the business community, we are able to support the social development of our riders so that success is achieved not only on but also off the bike. Finally, we believe that a healthy body and strong mind are very important. We therefore use the VolkerWessels Cycling Team to stimulate vitality among our employees.

Dutch Grand Prix 2023

Dutch Grand Prix

The Formula 1 Heineken Dutch Grand Prix at Circuit Zandvoort is an event where innovations, technology and realization come together at the highest level and on a world stage. As one of the proud main sponsors, we use this fantastic event to present our company with our 130 operating companies to our 17,000 colleagues, future colleagues and the rest of the Netherlands. The VolkerWessels-built circuit with its famous bowl corners shows what we are capable of, and hundreds of colleagues volunteer every year to ensure that the event runs smoothly.

Reggeborgh Foundation

Reggeborgh Foundation

At VolkerWessels we can proudly say: who makes, builds and thereby shapes the future. That is why we always aim for a living environment in which future generations can live, live and work healthily and happily! And in order to do this well, we attach great importance to the social interest. We feel responsible for creating a healthy and livable society. And we cannot do this alone.

That is why VolkerWessels is a partner of Reggeborgh Foundation. Reggeborgh Foundation is committed to a healthy future for everyone. The Foundation believes not only in the goals that are set, but also in the people who realize them; the makers of the future. It is their drive that takes us further.

As a partner, we thus contribute to meaningful initiatives in the sports and medical world and also stand for local involvement and support of top talent, for now and in the future. Together we go for a healthy society, putting people first. That is why we are proud of our partnership with Reggeborgh Foundation. Want to know more? Visit the Reggeborgh Foundation website. 

Tiny Forest

Tiny Forests

VolkerWessels is laying out Tiny Forests in various places in the Netherlands: pieces of dense, native forest the size of a tennis court. For this we are working together with the IVN Nature Education Foundation and Earthwatch Europe. We have already built Tiny Forests in Limburg, North Brabant, Drenthe, Groningen, Overijssel and have plans to build many more. This makes VolkerWessels currently the IVN's largest partner for the construction of Tiny Forests in the Netherlands.

Jarige Job

Jarige Job

In the Netherlands there are children who cannot celebrate their birthday because there is no money for it at home. Stichting Jarige Job helps these children by giving a birthday box worth €35. This box contains everything needed for a real birthday, at home and at school! VolkerWessels is a friend of Jarige Job because we believe that every child deserves a birthday.



VolkerWessels and the Rijksmuseum announced a partnership in December 2020. In addition to an annual contribution, this partnership will focus on making the museum's accommodation more sustainable. VolkerWessels will deploy its expertise in this regard, contributing to the preservation and accessibility of the collections.

Amsterdam Light Festival

Amsterdam Light Festival

VolkerWessels is a proud partner of the Amsterdam Light Festival, which is organized every winter, with artworks created especially for the festival. The festival also realizes special projects in collaboration with artists, partners and various stakeholders in the city. The thirteenth edition has the theme "World of Rituals" and will take place from November 28, 2024 to January 19, 2025.
