The business of the future, the one concerned with longevity and sustainability, requires a serious commitment towards people AND the planet and not just financial gains in order to stay relevant.
Veolia’s purpose is to contribute towards human progress which is illustrated in our commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, aimed at achieving a better and more sustainable future for all. Recent changes at Veolia Southern Africa have meant that our primary focus on water treatment has now shifted to include waste and energy solutions across Sub-Saharan Africa. Achieving 13 out of the 17 goals, to a lesser or greater extent, depending on the context, has already been well established through the various water treatment solutions that we offer. This includes water reuse, wastewater recycling, water scarcity solutions and zero liquid discharge to name but a few.

“The alignment with a greater Veolia vision, as well as a deeper commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals, means that the Southern Africa region is leading a sustainable business journey not only aimed at making a profit, but also improving the planet.”
Stanley Steenkamp , CEO Veolia Southern Africa.
