Circular Economy

Circular Economy Main

At Veolia, we are committed to helping customers gain value by going circular

Instead of throwing things away when they’ve served their purpose, we believe everything that we buy, use or consume should be recycled or converted into energy. We support a circular economy where materials are reused and remanufactured as standard, products are designed to last longer and sustainability is an integral part of our lives. Everything we do works towards making this vision a reality for our customers.

Leading the way

Closed-loop thinking is at the heart of our business. This is why we’re making a fundamental shift in our business model from service supplier to resource producer by manufacturing green products and energy. By doing this we can meet our customers’ environmental challenges and offer fully integrated resourcing solutions.

Re-shaping the future

We are working hard to create a future in which end-of-life resources are transformed into products that enrich our lives and can power our homes and industry. The circular economy already represents 20% of our turnover and we are constantly developing innovative ways to develop access to, preserve and replenish resources.

We know we can achieve this with customer collaboration as the examples in our case studies illustrate. That’s why we need to talk. We want to work with you to help you turn more materials into a resource and help you gain value by going circular.

How the circular economy will boost UK GDP

The World Economic Forum has forecast that the circular economy will contribute $1 trillion per annum globally by 2025. But until now, there has been no specific analysis of the potential gains to be made in the UK.  Our latest report in partnership with Imperial College London delves into this topic and can be found here.
