Corporate Responsibility

Veolia is an active member of Business in the Community, Northern Ireland's responsible business network.

We were only the second company to be awarded the Silver Level CORE accreditation following our first applications. CORE is Northern Ireland’s only corporate responsibility accreditation and strategically supports companies to develop their approach to corporate responsibility.

Attaining Silver level CORE accreditation

We have been shortlisted in the Responsible Company of the Year and Well-being at Work categories at the NI Responsible Business Awards.

We worked with Young Enterprise NI at Euston Street Primary School to deliver their Business Beginnings programme. The programme is for Year 7 pupils to learn what it takes to run a business. Over the 6 weeks they will develop a product and then sell it at a trade fair in Victoria Square.

Our teams are actively involved in many local activities including beach cleans and biodiversity events.
