Veolia targets expansion in Ireland

Veolia in Ireland targeting significant growth as we transition to a low carbon economy

Veolia in Ireland is targeting significant growth as we transition to a low carbon economy.

Veolia Ireland Country Director, Pat Gilroy said:

“We are now poised for expansion in the Irish market, targeting double digit growth annually over the next five years and creating 300 new jobs. As we transition to a low carbon economy, it is imperative that companies can access environmentally sustainable solutions. We are setting out to do just that, providing businesses in Ireland with the means to manage their resource needs more efficiently and grow with us in a circular economy.

“We now want to challenge the popular narrative that pits environmental concerns against the needs of business. Our recent report highlighted that adopting “circular economy” principles could contribute €1.65 billion to the Irish economy and create as many as 5,000 jobs over 10 years. Following a recent €450 million deal, we are already set to operate Mayo Renewable Power, Ireland’s largest independent biomass power plant which opens in 2017 that will help provide Ireland with 6% of its renewable energy needs.”
