EcoAct Report: Veolia 3rd of the best performing CAC 40 companies in terms of climate commitment

The EcoAct firm has just published its report "Climate Performance, where are the CAC 40 companies?". Veolia is ranked 3rd for its excellence in climate performance and its ambition to be involved in the climate transition.

The report analyses the climate performance and best environmental practices of the major French CAC 40 companies. On the basis of publicly communicated data and four criteria - measurement and reporting, strategy and governance, objectives and reduction, commitment and innovation - it analyses the commitments, strategy, actions implemented, and results in making the sustainability challenge integral and central to their business models. 

“In Germany, Veolia converts one billion plastic bottles a year into pellets to make new bottles, thereby saving 31,000 tonnes of oil. With Castorama, the Group is producing a new kitchen work surface using recycled plastic (65%) and wood residues (35%) from sales outlets. On the Plessis-Gassot site in France, Veolia produces 130GWh of electricity and 30 GWh of thermal energy per year by recovering the biogas from the waste," the report states.
