Our new combined company will have a positive impact on the world so our people, customers and the communities we serve have confidence that we are stepping up our efforts to create positive change.

We will put sustainability at the heart of how we do business, create products and services with a one planet mindset and we will take action to support underrepresented groups and the communities we serve.

Our story to date

Both Virgin Media and O2 have strong track-records of making positive change for our people, communities and our planet.  Through our respective Meaningful Connection Plan and Our Blueprint sustainability strategies, we set long term goals to reduce our emissions and waste and to create a lasting impact on society.

You can find all of our existing statements and reports that outline our sustainability performance here:

Protecting our planet

The climate crisis requires urgent action.  That’s why we’re going to shrink our impact on the planet by using the unlimited potential of connectivity and technology to accelerate a zero carbon future, faster.

Our goal is to achieve net zero carbon operations (scopes 1 and 2) by the end of 2025. We’re also committing to reduce our other environmental impacts and our gigabit and 5G services will power smart technology to lay the foundation for a low carbon future for the UK. 

Connecting communities

Whether it’s our people, products or services, Virgin Media O2 is at the heart of communities across the UK.

We’ll use our nationwide presence, our network of people and partnerships with brilliant organisations and charities to make a positive and lasting impact on society.

A business for everyone

Virgin Media O2 is a company for everyone – whether that’s our people or our customers.

We’re building a company where our people are empowered to bring – and be – their whole selves at work. It’s the only way we can truly work as one team, creating a high-performing culture that’ll bring business results like we’ve never seen.

We’ll create products and services that are inclusive, equitable and created with all our customers in mind.

Better business

We’re committed to running our business in a truly responsible way, just as our people and customers would expect. That means looking beyond our proactive environmental and social impact programmes and focusing on how we do business, every day.

We’ll support and empower our people understand and take responsibility for maintaining the highest standards of professionalism and integrity in their day-to-day work.

Together
fund

We’ve launched the Virgin Media O2 Together Fund to supercharge hundreds of small charities across the UK.

We’re donating £1,000 grants to support and celebrate community spirit, belonging and togetherness.
