Opened to 115,000 employees in 29 countries, the 8th share offering reserved for Veolia Group employees, Sequoia 2018, saw its overall subscription rate exceed 33%. Thus, 1 in 3 employees, i.e. 38,000 Veolia employees, have chosen to invest in this plan, for a total amount of 34 million euros(*).
Sequoia 2018, whose objective was to associate as many employees as possible to the company's performance, ranks first among Veolia's employee share ownership plans since 2004.

The main features of this offer were described in the release dated May 3, 2018 announcing the launch of this transaction (www.veolia.com).
