Today, Veolia has announced its sister company Dalkia plc, will be fully integrating with the UK group and adopting the Veolia brand name. This move will enable the company to offer its customers a wider range of environmental services in the areas of energy, water, waste and recycling.
While the name change reflects the closer integration of the group, the business will continue to provide customers with its expertise in developing, constructing and operating greener and more economical energy solutions with the added benefit of incorporating the knowledge and expertise from the other areas of the business.
Estelle Brachlianoff, Veolia’s Senior Executive Vice President for UK and Ireland said “Veolia has always been the UK’s leading environmental solutions provider, and bringing our energy arm, Dalkia, fully on board truly cements us as a team. We know this will be only a benefit to our customers now and going forward, as they will be open to a larger range of services helping them be more sustainable into the future”.
