CHAMPIONING ECOLOGICAL TRANSFORMATION
Our ambition is huge, but so is our determination
Never have environmental concerns been so instantly visible, or their consequences for our societies so real to people. In becoming the benchmark company for ecological transformation, Veolia is committing to accelerating and expanding the deployment of existing solutions, while simultaneously creating the solutions of tomorrow. We are moving forward hand-in-hand with our stakeholders, convinced that economic, social and environmental challenges must form an indivisible whole.
WHAT IS ECOLOGICAL TRANSFORMATION?
Ecological transformation means adapting, improving, and prioritising sustainable patterns of production and consumption. It means placing ecology at the forefront of our processes, solutions, and most importantly our mindset.
Veolia is continuously working to develop and improve both new and existing solutions in an attempt to provide radical solutions to major problems, with and for its stakeholders: local authorities, manufacturers, industry, civil society and our employees.
WHAT ARE THE FOUR PILLARS OF ECOLOGICAL TRANSFORMATION?
The four pillars of ecological transformation form a foundation upon which our society can build and develop. We cannot delay any longer and hope to change our methods gradually. It is time for decisive, structuring choices. It is time for ecological transformation.
Improving biodiversity is a crucial part of ecological transformation, changing our patterns of consumption and placing ecology at the heart of every process. Needless to say, biodiversity is a priority in all that we do.
Our natural environment is constantly exposed to harmful contaminants. Water, waste and energy require management and planning to ensure they are produced, used and disposed of effectively, efficiently and sustainably.
Fighting Climate Change
We are seeing the effects of climate change right before our eyes and we cannot hold off any longer. It is crucial we take action to prevent further damage to our environment and begin restoring our planet.
Pressure on our natural resources is increasing them towards extinction. We need to act now in order to work towards replenishing our resources, reducing our dependence, and building and implementing more sophisticated and sustainable solutions to resourcing our planet.
INTRODUCING THE ECOLOGICAL TRANSFORMATION BAROMETER
The first edition of the Ecological Transformation Barometer was conducted by Veolia in partnership with the research and consulting firm Elabe, using a sample covering more than half the world's population.
A global survey was conducted across 25 countries, spread over 5 continents, to find out if we are ready to accept the social, economic, and cultural changes necessary to take action and face the environmental emergency.
