Our solutions for industries and municipalities

Back to sectors
Both industries and municipalities are facing a combination of major environmental, regulatory, social, economic and operational challenges. As a result, they have begun to look beyond simple service solutions in search of a truly creative partner able to innovate. This is the kind of ongoing challenge at which Veolia excels.

New York raises its standards

New York City is saving $100 to $200 million a year thanks to improvement in the overall performance of its public water and wastewater services.

New York


Every year, New York City spends $1.2 billion to manage and maintain its public water and wastewater services. As part of the largest operational excellence program in the US, the city commissioned Veolia to perform a comprehensive audit of its services in order to improve performance while reducing operating costs and safeguarding local jobs.


Veolia works hand in hand with New York as the city’s partner, providing expertise and monitoring the areas for improvement identified in its audit report. The company and the city share the risks associated with implementing the recommendations as well as the benefits gained. Veolia’s earnings are directly linked to the performance improvements achieved.
