Veolia Environnement

Veolia is a large French-owned multinational which runs water, waste, energy and transport services. It is the successor to Vivendi and Generale des Eaux. It was created in 2000 by a spinoff of the environmental services functions of Vivendi, effectively recreating a group similar to the original Generale des Eaux.

Along with Suez, it is one of the two multinationals which dominates the private market for water and waste management services in France, Europe and the world.

The French state owns over 10% of Veolia, and in 2010 Veolia restructured its transport and military services sections as joint ventures with companies owned by the French state.
