Carbon Footprint

Opting for a carbon-efficient solution makes our customers less vulnerable tohydrocarbon scarcity, tensions on energy prices and government regulations and taxation.

Carbon footprint reduction program

Veolia Water Technologies has put in place a carbon footprint reduction program which drives innovation, accelerates adoption and development of clean technologies for water treatment and provides our customers with sustainable solutions.

This program has been implemented corporate-wide along with procedures, systems and key performance indicators which ensure continuous development of innovative technologies designed to meet our municipal and industrial customers' environmental and financial goals.

Quantify emissions, optimize processes

We benchmark our technologies and solutions by performing total carbon cost analysis over the lifetime of the installations and we use this data to develop carbon efficient, integrated water treatment solutions. Direct and indirect GHG emissions expressed in tons of carbon equivalent (CO2-eq) are taken into account, in line with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Scope 1, 2 and 3 boundary conditions.

"This metric demonstrates value to our customers by justifying an investment in a best-in-class solution, not just because it is reducing the operating costs over the lifetime of the installation but because it is also minimizing the financial risk of a direct and indirect carbon contribution."

Jean-Michel Herrewyn, Executive Vice President: Veolia

Creating responsible value

We work with municipalities and industrials to perform such financial analysis by evaluating the direct and indirect economic impact of CO2 reduction.

By committing to the innovative development of environmentally conscious water technologies and solutions worldwide, Veolia will continue to maximise the financial and environmental benefits for every customer.
