Environmental Commitments

Climate change, drought, pollution. It’s no longer possible to ignore the perils of our unsustainable relationship with the planet. That’s why we at Veolia North America believe we must take massive action now. 

For us, this isn’t just an idea—it’s the philosophy at the heart of our business that we put into practice each and every day. Learn more about how we’re using innovative new technologies and approaches to conserve water, reduce energy consumption, protect local ecosystems, and more.

Conservation Contest Video

Veolia is proud to sponsor a summer conservation video contest for 9th through 12th grade students in the Boise School District and Bishop Kelly High School. Showing us conservation through their eyes, students create public service announcements for our summer conservation campaign. The winning entries air on local television and our social media platforms during the summer season when consumer demand for water rises significantly.

The winning entry is awarded a $1,500 donation to their classroom from Veolia through the Boise Schools Educational Foundation or the Bishop Kelly Foundation. Second place is awarded $750 and third place is awarded a $500.

Veolia sponsors water conservation programs each year as part of its multi-platform communications to raise awareness among consumers for conserving water resources.
