Veolia is relocating North American HQ to BostonStaff writer ▼ | June 21, 2016
Veolia, an environmental solutions and optimized resource company, is moving its North American zone headquarters to Boston.
Environmental solutions Veolia has 7,900 North American employees
The company’s new corporate headquarters will be located at Veolia’s downtown Boston offices. Approximately 50 jobs will relocate to the Boston area over the next five years.
“We believe that Massachusetts and the Greater Boston area, with its commitment to sustainability and growing a knowledge-based, innovation-driven economy, is a perfect fit with Veolia’s mission of ‘Resourcing the world’,” said Veolia North America CEO William J. DiCroce.
Veolia has deep roots in Massachusetts and the Boston area in particular, providing thermal energy to the central business district of Boston, the Longwood Medical Area, and the biotechnology corridor of Cambridge.
The company also operates and maintains public water systems in partnership with many of the Commonwealth’s municipalities, including Gloucester, Lynn and Leominster - servicing more than 650,000 residents.
During 2016, personnel currently based in Veolia’s downtown Chicago headquarters who do not move to Boston will transition to the company’s Lombard, Illinois offices ■
