Resourcing the Regions

1. Build new models for value creation with our stakeholders

2020 target
Establish a major partnership based on creating shared value in every zone and every growth segment

Veolia interacts with all local stakeholders, from local authorities, institutions, civil society, citizen-users of our services, to enterprises and industries. Our relationship with the stakeholders has expanded considerably in recent years with the emergence of civil society, NGOs, social entrepreneurs, consumer associations, social solidarity players, academics and so on. These new players are pushing the perimeter of the traditional business models, leading to the evolution of new business model with co-creation of shared values.

Veolia obtains social license to operate by offering solutions that ensure our customers’ operations do not comprise the benefit of the local areas in which they operate. This requires continuous inventiveness in order to jointly build partnerships and initiatives that will create value.
