Being useful to be prosperous and not the reverse

Being the benchmark company for the ecological transformation means

Developed collaboratively since the end of 2018, the Group’s purpose was the subject of an engagement plan developed in January 2020 on behalf of Veolia employees, who are its primary ambassadors. The purpose sits at the heart of Veolia’s policy and acts as a compass to direct the Group’s strategy.


The purpose
our compass

  Purpose and Sustainable Development Goals  

The United Nations’ SDGs helped frame Veolia’s approach in developing its purpose. They were used to set targets and align the purpose with the 2030 Agenda. The multifaceted performance indicators were created to help meet these challenges. In all, 18 progress objectives are implemented through the Impact 2023 strategic plan. The SDGs also challenge the company on its ability to form new collaborations; through that collaborative effort and by relying on its capacity for innovation, Veolia will be able to meet the challenges imposed by the ecological transformation.

A powerful driver for recovery and transformation, Veolia’s commitment to multifaceted performance aims for a new balance between economic, social and environmental demands.

Multifaceted performance entails far-reaching and concrete change in the way Veolia conducts and develops its businesses.
The Group undertakes to assess its operations not just based on financial performance, but also on environmental, commercial, HR and social criteria. In 2020, Veolia ramped up its initiatives to ensure the success of this cultural shift at every level of its organization.
