Gold Sponsor Spotlight: @VeoliaUK

Sustainable St Albans Week 2018 couldn’t operate without the support of so many local organisations.  We thought we’d take this opportunity to focus on each of our sponsors, in the run up to the week.

Today’s spotlight falls on Veolia, one of our Gold Sponsors.  The company, who believe in sustainable solutions for a sustainable world, relished the opportunity to get involved as Gold Sponsors.

Keith McGurk - head & shoulders (2)“At Veolia, we are committed to the development of a sustainable world that can prosper and thrive, by adopting more circular and resource efficient models.  By working in partnership, we are helping people in their work, boosting the communities we live in and helping to protect the planet too.  Within St Albans City and District, we provide recycling, refuse collection and street cleansing services on behalf of St Albans City and District Council. We are committed to improving the communities in which we operate by creating social value and delivering services that benefit the local and wider environment. We are therefore proud to be involved in Sustainable St Albans Week. We wish to use this opportunity to advertise as much why it is important to put the right things in the right bin, to enable its recycling. Especially, we want to talk about how important it is that food waste goes into the food waste caddy and not the landfill bin.”.  Keith McGurk, Regional Director for Veolia.

Veolia work in collaboration with their customers to develop innovative solutions that increase efficiencies and save on cost. Together, they reduce carbon impact by preventing pollution, preserving scarce resources and raising environmental standards.

“We are delighted to have Veolia join us as a Gold Sponsor.  Their passion for sustainability will enrich what is already shaping up to be our best week yet”.  Catherine Ross, Chairperson for Sustainable St Albans Week.

Sustainable St Albans Week runs from 21- 29 April 2018 with 100+ events. We would not happen without the support and enthusiasm of our wonderful sponsors.

This year we especially want to thank our Community Sponsors  who are   BRE TrustJust Energy Solutions  and Rothamsted Research.

We want to give a huge thank-you to all of our Gold Sponsors including AECOM engineering firm, Allsopp estate agents, Godfrey’s Green Energy, Independent Locker Solutions Ltd, JPA Furniture, Lussmanns, Lyndhurst Financial Management,  and Veolia environmental services.


This will be the third week to run in St Albans and starts with the Our Planet Our Future event at Rothamsted Research on Saturday 21st April.  Other activities throughout the week include a plastic pot amnesty at Aylett Nurseries, a trail of the independent shops in Harpenden, a women-only cycle ride, health walks, a showing of the film “A Plastic Ocean” at the Odyssey Cinema, and concludes with The Know How Festival on Sunday 29th April.  This is a day-long fun, family-friendly event with workshops to share skills and knowledge, music, short films and local food.
