LENDING A HAND TO OUR NEIGHBORS
We play an active role in the communities we work in, supporting community activity through volunteerism, funding opportunities, involvement in professional organizations and participation in youth employment programs. We actively encourage our employees to get involved in a wide range of local community and national initiatives, including fundraising, raising awareness and volunteering. Recent examples include:
- Kendall Square Association (‘Kendall Square CleanUp’)
- East Cambridge Business Association
- Charles River Conservancy
- Cambridge Redevelopment Authority
- Kendall Square ECO-district
REDUCING CARBON POLLUTION AND KEEPING THE CHARLES CLEAN
Since acquiring the district energy system in 2005, Veolia has invested millions in improving the critical energy infrastructure supporting the cities of Cambridge and Boston, while also significantly reducing carbon emissions. With Veolia’s recent acquisition of Kendall Cogeneration Station and the installation of an additional pipeline, the thermal energy supplied to the Cambridge and Boston district consists of recycled “Green Steam.” Our “Green Steam” infrastructure improvements eliminate thermal pollution from the Charles River, improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Cambridge and Boston.
“I applaud Veolia and their partners for this investment, which is a win-win for both the environment and the economy,” said Cambridge Mayor David P. Maher. “This investment helps stimulate economic growth within our vital business and university facilities. The ‘Green Steam’ project will deliver higher efficiency and a lower carbon footprint – a combination that will benefit Veolia’s Cambridge and Boston customers.”
