A value-led business 

A reminder of what we stand for, every day.  

Our six core values were created from the ground, up – rather than a top-down approach. They keep us focused, shape our culture, determine our direction and act as a reminder as to why Vanden exists. 


We pull together as one unit, not just with those in front of us, but with all of our colleagues spanning multiple continents and cultures. We seek honesty and excellence to bring out the best in each other and do so without ego. Our collective knowledge and willingness to question is our superpower. 


Add Value

In absolutely everything we do. We add value to our people, customers and product through constant education and optimisation. Vanden exceeds expectations in the Service of our customers, using each encounter as an opportunity to sharpen our skills and add more value than anyone else. When in doubt, we ask ourselves – “Am I adding value?” 


Challenge ourselves and each other to learn new things and improve our skills. Be curious and industrious to redefine the boundaries of our knowledge, service and market. We’re proud of our battle scars as our failures will always be the greatest opportunity for growth. 


Never afraid to get our hands dirty! We take pride in exercising absolute ownership over the outcome of every task or challenge. We appreciate the power of forming a plan before taking action and jump at the opportunity to take the bull by the horns when we do. 

Enjoy the ride

It only happens once! We can’t always be serious and limit ourselves to be “business as usual”, so we encourage everyone to put their personalities into everything they do. 


Live every day with an attitude of gratitude! 

Diversity and inclusion 

We want Vanden to be a place where people belong, feeling like they are truly part of a global team. We are committed to creating an inclusive and safe environment, that our people enjoy being a part of, and that inspires entrepreneurial thinking.

Growth is one of our core values. We strive to be a company that enables everyone to grow, both personally and professionally.

Our successful worldwide locations are proof that a diverse workforce is critical to providing perspective,  problem solving, achieving better outcomes and accelerating at high speed, towards achieve our mission of being the world’s largest plastic recycled commodities company. 

Join the team.

We’re always on the lookout for people that want to make a difference.
