- Eliminating water pollution - 6 billion cubic meters treated at the 2, 928 or so urban wastewater treatment plants we operate;
- Minimizing atmospheric pollution - Veolia brings all its expertise to bear on minimizing the impact of its activities on air quality. All our emissions on a global scale are well below the limits set by the EU Industrial Emissions Directive.
- Drinking water quality - Giving priority to the health and safety of consumers, Veolia deploys the technologies needed to produce and distribute water that meets the highest standards of quality.
ASSESSING, PROTECTING AND INCREASING BIODIVERSITY
Treating wastewater, collecting and processing waste and managing energy resources responsibly are all activities that contribute to the preservation and development of ecosystems. Veolia is committed to going even further by helping to design ecosystem services and deploying initiatives and solutions aimed at protecting and strengthening ecosystems.
