Our progress so far

Resourcing the world is what we do on a daily basis through our waste, water and energy activities.

Veolia’s decarbonisation journey started back in 1966. Since 2009 our UK and Ireland activities have contributed to avoiding more than 12.6 MtCO2e by recycling and recovering waste we receive, treating wastewater and generating low carbon heat and electricity for our clients.

In 2020, our activities across the UK and Ireland avoided more than 3 MtCO2e, as shown in the pie charts below.
