Company to help cities and industries in all aspects of their ecological transformation
Active in the Middle East for more than forty years, Veolia, a leading integrated player of the environmental service sector, brings its activity on a new level through the merger with Suez businesses, finalised earlier this year.
With the combination of the strengths and competencies of both companies, the new Veolia will bring innovation, investments and enhanced resources to scale up the existing ecological transformation solutions while inventing the remaining ones.
In water and waste sectors, the addition of Suez’s activities and forces will enable Veolia to become the reference in hazardous waste treatment and to reinforce its position in the water management industry.
This will give the company a greater leverage to tackle major environmental challenges in the region, especially in the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
“The creation of a global champion of ecological transformation is a game changer for the environmental services sector. Veolia’s aim is to act as a unique enabler of the ecological transformation solutions and a reliable partner for public and private customers to respond to the environmental emergency,” commented Antoine Frérot, Chairman and CEO, Veolia. “Thousands of colleagues have joined Veolia to contribute to the inspiring ambition of becoming the world champion of ecological transformation,”remarked Azad Kibarian,Veolia Director for Italy, Africa and Middle East.
