Today, people spend more than 90% of their time indoors and so, buildings account for 40% of global energy consumption and emissions. That’s why Energy Efficiency in buildings is the biggest opportunity to save our planet’s natural resources. It is essential for buildings to reduce consumption and emissions while at the same time providing comfort conditions and indoor air quality, reducing the costs and increasing their property value.
Buildings need to become smarter and greener to enhance attractiveness, to reduce environmental impact and to increase property value. As buildings are becoming more and more complex to manage, they require a wide range of expertise in energy efficiency, IoT, analytics, indoor air quality and cybersecurity.
Veolia brings innovation and its worldwide experience to more than 100 million square meters of commercial buildings and 3700 health establishments. Veolia guarantees energy savings, as well as the costs of operation and maintenance. We rely on an organization of data analysts, engineers and IoT experts to leverage energy, water and waste data in real-time in our 29 smart monitoring centers Hubgrade around the world.
Veolia offers high value-added services to hospitals, clinics, retirement homes and other public and private healthcare establishments to free them from a host of non-medical tasks, ranging from temperature control to ensure patient and staff comfort to building maintenance. In particular, we offer energy management, health-risk management and comprehensive building management services.
We draw on our extensive energy management expertise and our broad array of technical services to create a comfortable environment for patients, visitors and staff; provide an uninterrupted power supply for technical installations; ensure that chilling, steam, medical vacuum and other utility systems meet quality and volume requirements for medical and logistic uses; and optimize energy consumption.
Meeting the critical challenge of safety
For healthcare establishments, safety is mission critical, day in, day out. Our first job is to mitigate health risks, such as hospital-acquired infections, and to raise awareness of safety issues and inform and train teams. Safety is also at the core of our commitment to continuous improvement, from regulatory and environmental audits to management of technical risks.
Supporting establishments' changing needs
Due to the constant changes in healthcare establishments' infrastructure, needs and environment, it is crucial to offer flexible services based on an in-depth understanding of the sector's concerns — and that is just what we do. These include optimizing building operating costs to meet budget requirements for medical activities and ensuring that facilities are consistently upgraded and comply with standards.
Veolia ensures a comfortable environment for staff and the public in office buildings, shopping centers, leisure facilities, schools, research establishments, railway stations, hotels and more. Moreover, we optimize operating costs by managing HVAC systems, communication networks, lighting, lifts, emergency and safety systems, cleaning and other services.
In office buildings, our teams' chief concern is to provide thousands of employees with a comfortable environment in which they can turn out quality work. No matter the size or number of offices involved, we offer customers an array of skills and quality service through a single point of contact. In this way, we're able to deliver the same level of service to customers across several national or international sites.
Civil service agencies
Civil service buildings must be managed with maximum efficiency by teams that can handle the most complex technical issues. To optimize services and operating costs, we apply our expertise in reducing energy consumption and our teams' professional skills in managing technical facilities and electrical, HVAC, telecommunication, fire detection and other critical systems.
Sites that serve the public
Shopping centers, leisure facilities, hotels and railway stations receive a constant flow of customers and visitors who must be offered maximum comfort, a warm reception, impeccable cleanness and a range of services. We leverage our deep technical skills portfolio to keep these sites attractive and inviting, notably through our specific expertise in optimizing floor space in stores.
