Veolia has been selected in the following indexes, FTSE4Good stock ESI Europe, Euronext Vigeo Europe 120, STOXX Global ESG Leaders, STOXX Global ESG Environmental Leaders.

This performance is also welcomed by the business press: the Enjeux-Les Echos magazine ranked Veolia 10th among the most CSR-committed CAC40 companies in 2015.

In 2015, the Group scored 99/100 in terms of transparency and a level B in terms of performance in relation to the evaluation of the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).
