Our approach

Sustainability is not part of our business – it is our business. We are shaping a better future as part of our strategy to create access to resources, and preserve and replenish them for generations to come.

With 160 years of expertise in the areas of water, energy and waste, Veolia applies its know-how to address some of the greatest environmental challenges of our time. To make the switch from use and dispose to a use and recover approach in today’s circular economy, Veolia creates and implements innovative solutions up and down the UK.
