Veolia UK’s ambition is to become the benchmark company in ecological transformation. We are a company of almost 14,000 employees, although we prefer to think of ourselves as “resourcers”. Every day across the country our “resourcers” design and deploy useful and concrete solutions for water, waste and energy management, which help our customers fight against climate change, prevent pollution of our water and create a circular economy where nothing goes to waste.
In 2021, Veolia UK served 1.8 million people through our municipal wastewater contracts. We completed 442 million waste collections across our local authority contracts, serving 3.1 million residential properties; and we treated over 1.5 million tonnes of commercial and industrial waste from our 85,000 private customers. We also produced over 560 MWe of renewable and low carbon electricity, to power over 1.3 million homes.
Veolia UK is an exciting and innovative place to work. We challenge the status quo, our purpose is to resource the world and we do this by working together to constantly progress. We are reinventing the way things work to reduce all of our environmental impact and increase efficiency, whether in the reuse of wastewater or the recovery of waste, such as plastics. At the same time, we anticipate the needs of tomorrow with innovative solutions that will decarbonise our energy and heating demands. We do this through the development of microgrids and energy management through our Hubgrade solution, which optimises the management of resources using digital and artificial intelligence.
We are driven by optimism and passion, not to see the world as it is, but how it should be; and we are tenacious in our efforts to achieve our goals.
These aren't just empty words.
