The damaging realities of the climate emergency are accelerating at pace. Climate change demands immediate action and requires every area of the economy and society to significantly reduce emissions to prevent further catastrophic and irreversible damage to the natural environment.
At Veolia, we provide waste, water and energy management services that are essential to everyday life. Considering this, there is even greater impetus for us to drive emissions reductions and achieve Net Zero across our business operations, which is why we have set out our ambitious plans to reach Net Zero by 2050 at the latest.
As part of our plans, we recognise that we must take learnings, adapt existing services and adopt new approaches. We must also explore every opportunity to reduce our environmental footprint by investing in green technologies, such as carbon capture, advanced anaerobic digestion processes, hydrogen compatibility, biofuels, and continue to drive up recycling rates by working with communities and customers to minimise waste.
Our plan outlines current progress we aim to build off, our methodological approach to Net Zero, our baseline and our overarching commitments across our key sectors and targets. Finally, we outline our approach to reporting against the progress of our activities.
