Volunteering & Sponsorship

Veolia current employees are the lynchpin of the Foundation, which relies on their voluntary commitment to serve people in need.

Veolia employees support projects and contribute their know-how as sponsors or volunteers.


Volunteers are employees who are prepared to travel to the four corners of the world to put their experience and skills to work for others. There are 450 of them in the Veoliaforce intervention team.

At the request of international humanitarian organizations, the volunteer intervenes after a disaster or to improve the living conditions of the underprivileged on a long-term basis. They provide expertise in one of the Group's core businesses: Water, Energy and Waste.


The sponsor is the link between the project partner and the Foundation:

  • He/she meets the project owner on a regular basis and verifies the relevance of his/her initiative in relation to the Foundation's criteria;
  • He/she assesses the project's technical and financial feasibility and assists the project owner throughout the application process;
  • He/she follows the project through to completion.
