Our 2020 Sustainability Report is now available

Our latest Sustainability Report demonstrates how we are helping communities and businesses rise to the challenge of protecting our planet

At Veolia, we play an important role in protecting and preserving our natural environment, making businesses more sustainable and helping our local communities. And, despite all the challenges faced over the past 18 months, we’ve achieved so much when it comes to sustainability in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

To summarise some of our great achievements, we’re pleased to release our 2020 Sustainability Report. Here's a quick summary of what you'll find in it! 

 

Sustainability
Our latest Sustainability Report shows how Veolia’s team right across the island of Ireland is continuing to deliver sustainable solutions for our customers and our communities while looking after our people.

People

Throughout 2020, we placed a special emphasis on mental health and wellbeing. This included a series of video interviews with our regional directors on their approach to mental health. We also managed to recruit 70 new people and record 35,589 hours of training.

 

Social

We marked the 10-year anniversary of the Veolia Connect community fund, and celebrated global awareness day such as Earth Day, Environment Day and Biodiversity Day.

 

Environmental

Our work with Business in the Community continued and we signed up as a Business Supporter of the All Ireland Pollinator Plan. We also managed nearly 100,000 tonnes of waste.

 

Commercial

We began work on our energy performance contract for St James’s Hospital in Dublin: a 20-year contract that will save 118,380 tonnes of CO2.

In addition to this, we completed the upgrade to the Liscarton Water Treatment Plant, benefitting some 40,000 people, and used our European network of waste facilities to provide a continuous service to our hazardous waste customers.

 

Economic and Financial

Our investment in our IT infrastructure allowed us to keep our employees safe and continue to collect and treat waste, operate water and wastewater treatment plants and deliver secure, reliable supplies of industrial utilities.
