Belonging & Sustainability

We’re a fun-loving bunch at Virgin Media. But we always know when to take things seriously. From lowering our environmental impact to increasing opportunities for disabled people, we want to grow our business in a way that’s good for people, communities and the environment.

Belonging

At Virgin Media, we're committed to building a diverse workforce, where nobody is left behind.

A place to belong & feel proud of

We’re building a place where everyone belongs. A place where everyone is empowered to bring – and be – their whole selves at work. It’s the way that we’ll truly work as one team, driving our high performance culture and empowering all of our brilliant people.

Diverse and unique individuals, with varied backgrounds, experiences, races, gender identities, ages, religions and abilities. Every single person matters.

We’re always listening & learning

Across our business we’ve been building employee network groups, to lead conversations about true inclusion and to champion diversity. We don’t just talk a good talk, belonging is always first thing on our minds – we truly live and breathe it.

Whether it’s delivering on enhanced workplace adjustments, running community volunteering programmes or delivering training and skills development, we’re committed to an inclusive approach in all of our strategies, decisions and experiences.

Sustainability

We’re sustainability savvy

Our sustainability team might be small, but our strategy has made a huge impression – and we have even bigger plans.

Our ‘5 in 5’ goals made sure that from 2015 – 2020 we grew our business in a way that’s good for our customers, our people and the environment. Above and beyond this, use our business, brand and people to create positive change for our customers and the communities we’re part of.

Through our 2020 strategy we’ve achieved positive social and environmental impacts that we’re really proud of. We’ve reduced our carbon footprint by 42% against our 2014 baseline, purchased 100% of our contracted energy from renewable sources, and supported more than 1 million disabled people with the skills and confidence to get into and stay in work.

We’re now working on our new sustainability strategy that will launch at the beginning of 2021 – watch this space!
