CSR-Politics

In VST, we believe that the long-term success of our business depends on the balance between social, environmental and economic aspects of our business. Our CSR policy supports our vision and mission and commits us to our employees, our customers, the environment and the company’s business assets. Taking social responsibility is a natural part of our way of doing business and we want to stand for a constructive and socially responsible development of VST Industries A/S.
Without the big gestures, social responsibility must be an integral part of our way of Doing business.
Specifically, our attitudes and ambitions are shown in our policies, the apprenticeship policy, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) policy, environmental policy, occupational health policy, social responsibility policy and our openness policy.

VST’s policies for apprentices

At VST we always strive to have two apprentices, preferably in different places in the educational process. If there are apprentices who are trapped in their training educational process in another company and suddenly have no internship, we would like to see if it is an apprentice, we can help to complete the education. We are working closely with the Education center Ringkøbing-Skjern and Skjern Technical School, for the benefit of all of us.

Social responsibility Policy

Assuming there is a good match between the person and VST as a company, we employ people with special challenges that make them unable to perform a regular full-time job. It will typically be on request from the municipality, where the VST and the employee are contracted after the Sickness Allowance section 56. It may also be an agreement with a refugee on a traineeship in connection with a basic integration training, IGU or flex job agreements.

Policy for Openness

It is our policy that if someone is inviting us to participate in a cooperation, we will stretch ourselves far to join. VST is happy to open the doors for cooperation with the outside world in many ways. Recently, two teams of students from Aarhus University engineering Studies in Herning have written project assignments in close cooperation with VST. VST also participates in networks and is willing to participate in interdisciplinary projects. The latest was in collaboration with the Technical University of Denmark on robot welding. Participation in cooperation with Skjern Technical school on training that robot operators are on their way.
