We express our commitment to sustainable water management through awareness and educational initiatives, especially for young people.
A socially responsible initiative
Sustainable water management requires the participation and commitment of all stakeholders, especially citizens. Hence our involvement, as a local operator, in the life of municipalities, by listening to their concerns and fostering clear, transparent dialogue with all stakeholders. In the areas we serve, this allows us to provide the information and advice necessary for everyone to make "green" choices in support of rational water management: respecting aquatic environments, watering gardens at dusk or taking toxic waste such as oil, cleaners and paints to waste drop-off centers instead of pouring them down the drain.
Educating future generations
Promoting eco-citizenship also means environmental education initiatives targeting society's youngest members. Veolia Water creates teaching and communication tools for schools, including an instructional kit distributed in a number of countries. We also organize local and international events such as contests, seminars and water production plant tours. Children can learn about major water issues and the need to fight pollution and waste and then promote good eco-citizen practices in their own families.
