Our commercial expertise

In recent years our commercial UK business has gone from strength to strength, with a client base including many major public and private sector organisations.

We have a long history of innovation and problem-solving. So whether we're building a brand new, state-of-the-art wastewater treatment facility for a water company or operating a commercial plant that was built in the 1970s, our approach remains the same: we work with the available facilities, technologies and budgets to develop and deliver the best possible solution every time.

We divide our services into key sectors:
  • Commercial Services - Operation and maintenance of private water and wastewater facilities, project and programme management, and customer services Municipal Services - Providing build, operation and maintenance services for water and wastewater companies and local authorities
  • Solutions and Technologies - Offering specialist skills in engineering and turnkey design and build projects, as well as an unequalled range of patented, technological products
  • Multi-Utilities - Providing complete utility installations for new building developments
  • Organics Recycling - Providing recycling solutions for organic waste streams


The Environmental Management systems of all Veolia's water businesses are now certified to ISO 14001 and the majority of Veolia Water Outsourcing businesses have integrated management systems that additionally meet the requirements of ISO 9001 (Quality Management) and OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety). We also hold a wide range of industry and trade accreditations. For full details, please see our Accreditations page.

We are also proud to have won, or been nominated for, a wide range of environmental leadership, customer services, innovation and health & safety awards - see our Awards and Achievements page for full details.

All clients have different needs

We never resort to a one-size-fits-all solution, because we recognise that each client is unique and we pride ourselves in creating a fully bespoke service. For instance, our contract might require us to install and manage complete turnkey facilities, or to resolve issues and improve efficiency at an existing plant. Regardless of contract size, we always aim to provide a high-quality service.

Our clients tell us that they value our set-up because they know we represent a safe pair of hands. Leaving the management of their water operations to us as a trusted partner frees them up to focus their efforts on developing their business.
