o deliver on our vision of using digital to make good things happen we are focused on two pillars; Growing responsibly and sustainably and Doing more good with digital.
Technology has a big impact on the way we all live and work and at Virgin Media we want to help people get the best from it. But it’s not just the technology itself that interests us – what really matters is how it can improve people’s lives. Our vision is to use our know-how, our talented people and a little Virgin Media magic to prove that digital makes good things happen – for people, businesses and communities right across the UK and Ireland.
Our strategy is going to help us achieve this vision. Our first area of focus is Growing responsibly and sustainably. As we chase our big growth plans through to 2020, we’re going to make sure we grow in a way that’s good for people, society and the environment. Our second area of focus is Doing more good with digital. This is our long-standing promise to make the power of connectivity benefit our customers and the communities we’re part of.
Digital for Good
We’re going to use our network, name and knowledge – more than ever before – to help people discover the positive power of digital technology in the UK and Ireland, and take brilliant digital ideas to wherever they’re needed most.Two of our five 2020 sustainability goals are focused on doing more good with digital:
Growing responsibly and sustainably
n 2015 we started our biggest ever network expansion – the UK’s largest investment in internet infrastructure for more than a decade. Through our £3 billion investment we will extend our network to approximately 4 million additional premises over the next 5 years.
This will increase the number of homes and businesses to which Virgin Media can offer services to nearly 17 million premises by 2020. Our expansion will connect more people to ultrafast broadband, create 6,000 new jobs, and boost the UK economy by £8 billion. And because we’re determined to grow in a way that’s good for people, society and the environment, we’ll be focusing on the things at the heart of our company: our people, our products and our operations.
This is why three of our five 2020 sustainability goals are focused on Growing responsibly and sustainably:
