Environmental Compliance

Environmental Compliance

As part of our daily operations we ensure important environmental monitoring data is publicly available on our website. This transparency is important when dealing with relevant external parties in relation to Veolia activities and processes.

Veolia has a responsibility to ensure that we, as a company, are minimising the impact our operations and activities have on the environment. Reporting environmental data, and the impact that we might have on the environment and community, is central to our license to operate.

As a requirement stipulated by various Federal and State Governments, as well as leading industry organisations, Veolia has implemented a number of systems and processes to ensure that our operations and activities across waste management, water solutions and energy services, comply with current legislation and local regulations.
