The Veolia CSR policy is part of its strategy, its economic model and its sustainability. Convinced that it holds part of the solution to the collective challenges of our times, provided it serves its stakeholders with balance, Veolia defines itself as a sustainable company able to achieve its economic, social and societal missions. 

Our CSR policy is therefore enshrined in our business model as demonstrated by the Purpose and the related multifaceted performance commitments, objectives and targets.

2020 is the first year of implementation for these new objectives. This chapter describes their environmental performance, human resources performance and social performance components as well as the compliance approach. 

In 2020, the year of transition, the objectives supporting its sustainable development strategy, defined in 2015, based on nine sustainable development commitments were achieved. 

French regulations on the Vigilance plan and the Nonfinancial Performance Statement also offer a framework for these initiatives. All information linked to the Nonfinancial Performance Statement is verified by an independent third party body. 

For fiscal year 2020, the indicators noted by the symbol (√) were checked with a reasonable level of assurance. 

The Group’s nonfinancial rating is an independent evaluation of these initiatives by third parties.
