Our commitment to a more inclusive and diverse workplace
We have a longstanding commitment to a maintaining a work environment that respects the dignity and worth of each individual. All Veolia employees, contingent workers and contractors are expected to treat others with dignity and respect, understand expectations regarding behavior, take reports of harassment seriously, and set a good example of respect and inclusivity. These expectations are not only part of our policy, they are an integral company value.
When we create and foster a culture of mutual respect, it increases creativity and teamwork. These are essential to making sure Veolia is the best place to work for our employees, and the best partner to our customers.

Celebrating our differences
To nurture an inclusive environment where employees are empowered to share their experiences and ideas, we are proud to be home to a growing number of employee-run Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). These highly-active groups enable employees to develop new skills, network, and grow both personally and professionally. Current ERGs include:
- ACHIEVE Network for employees of African descent and their allies
- Asia Pacific American Forum
- Hispanic Forum
- LGBTQ+ Alliance
- Veterans Network
- Volunteer Council
- Women of Veolia
We've also created a global network of over 100 Inclusion & Diversity (I&D) Ambassadors, whose mission is to build a strong inclusion and diversity culture within their respective regions.
We also recognize that leadership is essential to success. Our Global Inclusion & Diversity leader and their cross-functional team of HR, Learning & Development and Communications professionals partner with the ERGs and I&D Ambassadors to develop programs that inform and inspire the wider global employee population on issues including our commitment to diversity, creating an inclusive culture and building a balanced gender talent pipeline.
