In France and abroad the Veolia Foundation supports non-profit general interest projects that contribute to the sustainable development of the territories. Its priority areas of intervention are humanitarian emergency and development aid, support for employment and social links, protection of the environment and biodiversity.
Its originality lies in supporting each project through a sponsor, a Group employee, and in encouraging skills sponsorship, thus bringing its partners, associations and institutions the expertise of the volunteers in the Veoliaforce network.
Since it was set up in 2004, the Foundation has helped more than 1,350 projects and carried out nearly 150 skills sponsorship missions.
