Our CSR mindset

At the core of our CSR efforts is a powerful shared belief that we are the best versions of ourselves when we are positively impacting others. Our CSR mindset is centered around four key facets. We aim to be ethically centered, socially connected, environmentally responsible and financially disciplined.

Ethically Centered

We engage honestly with employees, make a positive impact, are authentic and build long-term trust with our stakeholders.

Socially Connected

We actively support each other’s betterment through ongoing connection to and celebration of our values, and we give back to our communities through volunteering.

Financially Disciplined

We make intelligent investments that consider more than the bottom line, including business opportunities that align with our core purpose, improve risk management and promote innovation.

Environmentally Responsible

Environmental stewardship is one of our core values and we recognize the importance of embracing sustainable practices in our operations.

Vibrantz submitted our first EcoVadis assessment in December 2023, with 55 pieces of evidence demonstrating our progress. We are proud that, after only 18 months of operating as one business, we achieved a “Committed” badge. We scored 50 of 100 in the environmental category and 60 of 100 in sustainable procurement. Our Spain subsidiary maintained their Platinum medal, while our subsidiary in The Netherlands scored a Silver medal in 2023.

Vibrantz is part of the United Nations’ (UN) Global Compact initiative – a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation and disclosure of responsible business practices.

The UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world and is a call to companies to align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption, and to take action to support the UN goals and issues embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Key achievements

To drive progress, we established a CSR Council with key stakeholders who are championing positive impact at Vibrantz. Sustainability is championed at the highest level by our CEO, Michael Wilson. The CSR Council will play a central role in ensuring sustainability remains at the heart of our everyday.
