Build new models for relations and value creation with our stakeholders
We believe for successfully implementation of any water supply project along with technical engineering an essential component is social engineering. It is essential and important to build social acceptability for the project to be ackowledged and appreciated by the community.
Veolia has designed an innovative social model of Social Welfare Team (SWT) to act as a bridge between the citizens and the company in areas of its operation. This models involves stakeholders from across the society who advocate and educate the citizens about the projects. The Social Welfare Teams creates community liasioning through innovative social models like Water Friends, Mohalla meetings and help to build social acceptability of the project among the citizens.
The implementation of the Social Welfare Team in Nagpur and Nangloi area in Delhi has helped our Orange City Water and Nangloi Water Services projects to achieve remarkable results and bring improvement and well being in the community.
