Following today's announcement by the Government on the Autumn statement Robert Hunt Executive Director of Veolia Environmental Service has commented:
“Veolia welcomes the Government’s statement today with regard to the new PFI model. Veolia believes that the Private sector investment in waste infrastructure has already delivered significant benefits both with regard to landfill diversion, job creation and creation of vital waste infrastructure already. Clearly we will wish to study the detail of the new proposals but the injection of additional equity and facility for better financing is clearly to be welcomed.
With regard to the comments with regard to closed projects at all times Veolia is in dialogue with its key PFI clients with a view to ensuring best value at all time whilst obviously respecting the economic integers of the original investment”
