VMI’s aim is to help build a sustainable society, not just for ourselves but also for the generations to come. We assess each business decision and practice for its impact not only on profitability, but also on the stakeholders, people, planet and how we position ourselves. Our environmental policy is designed to achieve continuous improvements in minimizing the burden on the environment by taking measures to save energy and reduce waste.
Our starting point is always that we want to create value for our stakeholders. Contacts with stakeholders, such as suppliers and customers, are also aimed to share thoughts and use their input to improve our organization. We have defined these groups of stakeholders as strategic because of either their impact on VMI or VMI’s impact on them. By entering into a dialogue with them, we can share our vision, policy, strategy and expectations, and test these with a view to refinement.
The quality of both the organization and its employees is a decisive factor in the success and growth of VMI. For that reason VMI’s Code of Conduct mandates how employees are to conduct themselves in a variety of situations. One way in which VMI manifests its commitment to social responsibility is by participating frequently in charity sports events.
VMI feels responsible for its environment and therefore implements ISO 14001 environmental management systems. Environmentally friendly developed products are VMI’s commitment. Our environment policy is designed to achieve continuous improvement in minimizing our burden on the environment.
Profit is a precondition for VMI’s continuity. VMI’s innovative strength is a cornerstone of its future profit. Moreover VMI prefers to work with local suppliers, benefitting from VMI being established in Epe.
VMI conducts its business according to the principles of honesty, integrity and transparency. We have a zero-tolerance policy regarding unethical business behavior and we expect our suppliers to follow the same standards. Our employees are encouraged think of sustainable business practices with enthusiasm and as standard.
