Veolia's impact on local communities infographic

Business in the Community Ireland (BITCI) has identified that 60 top companies in Ireland, including Veolia, have contributed over €30 million to charities and community groups last year while employees racked up 264,735 volunteer hours. The data is featured on an online ‘Business Impact Map’ which gives a breakdown of how these companies and their employees supported local community groups and charities during 2018.

“Employees want to work for companies that encourage volunteering as part of everyday business and crucially want to work where their values align with their employer. Companies understand the critical value of engaging in tackling social issues; it is a fundamental sustainability challenge. Employee engagement is a critical tool to attract and retain the best talent as employees now expect their employers to have a community strategy in place as standard”.
