This growth is being supported by £750 million of investment in the UK over the next five years as well as increasing revenue from sustainable innovation projects.

Veolia UK & Ireland senior executive vice-president Estelle Brachlianoff said: “We need to be even bolder in realising what the circular economy presents for the UK right now.

“For our customers, tomorrow’s environmental challenges require action and innovation today and in the last year, our activities have reduced carbon emissions by 2.15 million tonnes.”

Veolia also noted that it diverts 98% of customer waste from landfill, generates sufficient low carbon and renewable energy to power the equivalent of over 1.5 million homes and produces over 200,000 tonnes of compost.
