THE LARGEST OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE PLAN IN THE UNITED STATES
Every year, New York City spends $1.2 billion to manage and maintain its public water and wastewater services. As part of the largest operational excellence program in the US, the city commissioned Veolia to perform a comprehensive audit of its services in order to improve performance while reducing operating costs and safeguarding local jobs.
LINKING EARNINGS TO PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENTS
Veolia works hand in hand with New York as the city’s partner, providing expertise and monitoring the areas for improvement identified in its audit report. The company and the city share the risks associated with implementing the recommendations as well as the benefits gained. Veolia’s earnings are directly linked to the performance improvements achieved.
