Gender Pay Gap Report 2020/21: A more meaningful place to work

At Veolia we’re committed to inclusion each and every day and recognise that the gender pay data is only one measure in building a truly inclusive culture. In 2021 we launched an ambitious Inclusion Strategy focusing on 5 key areas:


Gender Inclusion 5 Key Areas

Veolia for everyone

We’re committed to developing, retaining and attracting more females into Veolia including front line and driver positions. This is an area of our business where a high percentage of those occupying these roles are male. To attract more females into our industry, we’ve launched a strong campaign focusing on encouraging more women into driver roles, and we are proud to have this featured in the media. 


Increasing our commitment to inclusion

Since launching our Inclusion Strategy, we have created new tools to better facilitate our inclusion work. We recorded our inclusion video to continue to build awareness on what it means to be inclusive at Veolia and also broadened our EQUAL Committee and network of allies. In doing so, we have provided greater autonomy and clearer terms of reference to projects that are aligned to our Inclusion Strategy and celebrated over 12 diversity and inclusion events, including National Inclusion Week, International Women’s Day and Pride.

Diversity and Inclusion is not a static idea; it continues to change, develop and evolve, as does Veolia’s Inclusion Strategy. This report on our gender pay gap will help in advancing our initiatives to create a more diverse and inclusive workplace, which is essential if we are to achieve our purpose of Ecological Transformation.

Our purpose can only be fulfilled by finding innovative solutions from a diverse workforce that represents the communities we serve. Many of our teams live and work in the same environments and I was immensely proud of the hard work and determination they showed to continue serving their communities in a period of deep uncertainty and difficulty over the last two years.

We all have a part to play in protecting our planet’s resources and we all need to feel empowered to be part of sustainable change.
