Corporate Responsibility

Veolia cultivates its activities as a socially responsible company, imbuing its corporate strategy with working practices and attitudes that contribute to sustainable development. We strive for economic, social and environmental balance.

Veolia designs, develops and deploys solutions that have a positive impact on the environment, on individual well-being and on economic prosperity. Veolia achieves these goals while actively helping its employees and the regions in which it operates to grow, in line with its commitment to sustainable development.

Veolia's reputation is underpinned by the excellence and extensive expertise of its employees. This rich human capital is the result of a deliberate drive to pursue continuous improvement in three key areas: diversity, health and safety at work, and ongoing skills development.
Training is a cornerstone of the company's human resources policy and is embodied by the Campus Veolia worldwide network. Courses are tailored to individual needs and are available to everyone, ensuring customers the highest standard of service while contributing to the development and safety of employees. Programs are designed in line with Veolia's strategy, providing employees with the professional tools needed to successfully pursue the transition toward more environmentally friendly practices while broadening skillsets.
Veolia plays an active part in the life and development of local communities. While economic globalization has blurred borders and changed the landscape, water, waste and energy management have retained strong local roots.
 Partnering with stakeholders in the public and private sectors, Veolia strives to preserve ecosystem balance wherever it operates. Through its in-depth knowledge of local issues and challenges, Veolia creates tailored solutions for individual regions and communities through a process of ongoing, clear communications designed to make them more competitive, appealing and sustainable. Veolia contributes to growth in green jobs and also supports the development of local small businesses in areas in which it has operations.
Drawing on 160 years' experience in providing people with essential services and environmental expertise of the highest caliber, Veolia seeks to make the world a more sustainable place.
 While major policymakers around the world remain divided over which development models to implement, Veolia continues to pursue an active approach to make changes where they count. This is a fact embodied by its everyday operations around the globe, which offer tangible proof of ways to protect the environment and improve economic and social development.
