Veolia Leads in the Annual List of Top National Environmental Services Companies in North America

BOSTON, AUGUST 10, 2022 — Veolia, the world leader in delivering environmental services in water, waste and energy, has received, through its affiliates in the U.S., the top ranking in an annual listing of the largest U.S. environmental services companies compiled by Engineering News Record, a prominent industry trade publication.

Ranked according to reported revenue, Veolia emerged as Number One in the publication’s annual list of the “Top 200 Environmental Firms” in the U.S. in numerous market segments, including:

  • Hazardous Waste Management
  • Water Treatment/Supply
  • Wastewater Treatment
  • Air Quality/Clean Energy

Veolia’s top ranking in these categories affirms its status as the leader in the ecological transformation as well as its commitment to resource the world, while helping industrial and municipal customers address their environmental and sustainability challenges in energy, water and waste. Specifically, Veolia is improving clients' energy efficiency, better managing their water and wastewater and recovering resources from their wastes.

This recognition follows the completed merger of Veolia with Suez earlier this year, with the combined assets, largely concentrated on water services, now part of Veolia. In the United States and Canada, the combination of the two companies positions Veolia North America with more than 10,000 employees and more than 350 operations, making it the leading water and wastewater treatment company in the U.S.

“We are extremely pleased to be recognized as the leader in providing innovative and vital environmental solutions to millions of people in the U.S. and around the world,” said Fred Van Heems, Veolia North America President and CEO. “The environmental services sector has a key role to play in providing the ecological transformation solutions to help businesses and communities to manage the resource scarcity and mitigate the climate change impact. At Veolia we aim to be at the forefront of innovation and champion the ecological transformation in the U.S. and across the globe.”

The top 200 firms’ environmental services revenue reached a new high this year, with a total of $112.7 billion generated last year, and non-U.S. revenue at $53.3 billion. That total grew based in large part from the work of Veolia.
