See Us In Action
At V3 Companies, we appreciate the benefits we receive from giving back to society. We created the V3 Social Responsibility (VSR) program to provide our employees with a simple path to philanthropic volunteer opportunities by donating paid time off to contribute their talents to our communities.

Protecting Our Planet
A key component to V3 Companies’ effort to become more socially responsible is to develop ways to lessen our impact to our natural environment – both in the engineering work we do and the way in which we conduct our business. Concern for the environment and promoting a broader sustainability agenda are important to V3. Our firm follows and promotes good sustainability practices to reduce the environmental impacts of our activities, with the goal of reducing our carbon footprint on current and future generations.
It is our privilege to have a positive impact on elementary education students through our partnership with Junior Achievement; the 2,500 people in the impoverished Village of Armenta, Honduras through our partnership with Engineers Without Boarders; the families now residing in homes constructed through our efforts with Habitat for Humanity; and scores of individuals who use the natural amenities of the forest preserves, lakes and streams in northeast Illinois through our conservation and clean-up efforts with Centennial Volunteers and The Conservation Foundation.
