About us

Leaders in Environmental Performance

Who we are

Veolia delivers operational solutions across water, waste and energy that drive bottom-line savings, and optimal sustainability performance for our customers.

We are resourcing the world

As natural resources become scarcer, and we face growing challenges of urbanisation, consumerism and climate change, we need innovative models that support growth and sustainability.

Today, water, waste and energy can all be recovered. Our solutions transform what is discarded by some, into valuable resources for others.

We resource the world using Integrated Design. We plug in our integrated systems to operations like yours, to turn waste into energy, and wastewater into new water supplies. In this way, we are protecting and replenishing natural resources for people around the world.

 

We understand the issues facing your industry

In Australia and New Zealand, we have more than 40 years’ experience in water, waste and energy management. And we are the only integrated environmental solutions provider working across Heavy Industry, Commercial and Municipal sectors.

With our local knowledge and global expertise, we can help you overcome the challenges of your industry.

Understanding our brand

‘Veolia’ is derived from the name Aeolus, the ruler of winds in Greek mythology.

Our brand team wanted to enhance the reference to air. So they took the first letter of the French work for wind: ‘vent’. They then replaced ‘us’ at the end with ‘ia’, and our brand was born: Veolia.
 

What does our logo represent?

Our logo represents three elements: continuity, union, and protection.

The circle symbolises the unity of everyone in our company working together. It also references our planet and the fragility of its richness and equilibrium.

The ring represents the union between the individual and the community. It’s a symbol of how our employees work with each other, and with the wider community.

At the heart of our symbol is the representation of our people, with two arms coming together to enfold and protect.
