For Veolia Water UK running a responsible business is the way in which we fulfil the obligations we have to our stakeholders including our employees, customers, regulators, suppliers, investors and Government bodies.
It involves a more comprehensive and public reporting of our performance beyond financial reporting, to include environmental, social, governance and ethical dimensions of our activities. The way we manage our relationships with our stakeholders and communicate our values and principles affects the long-term success of our business.
We have an excellent track record in reporting our environmental, economic and social performance. We believe our leadership position helps to improve overall business performance.
Our approach to responsibility underpins our management of a sustainable water business.
