We are passionate about doing our part in making a positive impact on our world.
Whilst we are focused on being the best operators in every sector we operate within, the leadership of VP believes our business must be a force for good for our people, our communities and our environment.
Our corporate responsibility programme contains a number of great initiatives, which we are driving in our business.
As an example, The Leadership for Hope Programme from Emerging Leaders is our flagship people & community programme which is having a major impact both within the business and also within our communities. Emerging Leaders won the M&S innovation award in 2013 and EL and M&S are working closely together to roll out the Leadership Programme across the M&S supply chain following the success at VP.
