Veolia claims top award for 'responsible business'

2000 bitc 2016 veolia

Veolia has won the Responsible Business of the Year award, the flagship category at the annual Business in the Community (BITC) event.

The award highlights those who embed a sustainable approach to their decision-making and whose operations support a stronger society.

Estelle Brachlianoff, senior executive vice-president Veolia UK & Ireland, said: “Winning this award shows how our 14,000-strong team has made responsible thinking part of how we do business.

“We are committed to saving resources, carbon reduction, building a sustainable future, investing in communities through apprenticeships and employing people from marginalised groups.”

Stephen Howard, BITC chief executive, said: “The Responsible Business Awards provide the proof that, from the largest global multinational to the smallest local firm, business is a powerful force for good in society.

“This year we have seen some profound examples of what a business can achieve when it puts responsibility at the heart of its operations. I congratulate Veolia for the practical action it has taken to build a fairer world and more sustainable future.”
