Veolia’s solutions and technologies play a key role in:
- reducing the use of natural resources and fossil fuels;
- promoting widespread recycling and waste recovery;
- providing waste-to-energy solutions that generate energy in dealing with waste; and
- providing new raw materials.
As One Veolia, we’re working hand-in-hand with cities and industries to provide new industrial patterns based on performance, efficiency and ecological responsibility! #LivingCircular
Recognizing the value of resources
As it relates to water specifically, Veolia has a number of tools designed to evaluate the role of water and how its use and management can be specifically optimised:
- Water Impact Index: This index examines the effect of human activity on water resources. It provides a methodology where positive and negative implications of how water resources are established, assessed and managed. It allows us to make better informed choices about how we can optimise water management.
- True Cost of Water: This tool takes a comprehensive view of direct, indirect and risk-related costs related to water usage in any given operation. With better assessment of these costs, decision makers can implement optimum strategies to prevent water-related risks from occurring and reducing their financial implications.
Bottom line impacts
- Reducing carbon and water footprints optimizes costs and minimizes financial and environmental risks.
- New valuable byproducts, such as wastewater-produced bioplastics, balance economics with environmental stewardship.
- Water reclamation technology allowed Chevron to meet its water needs with recycled water, enabling its San Ardo oil field development to progress in California.
