Veolia's Sustainability Fund has launched for 2022


After a successful launch in 2021, Veolia’s Sustainability Fund is back this year and offering up to £1,000 worth of funding to innovative project ideas to transform local communities across the UK!


From May, Veolia’s Sustainability Fund will support inspirational ideas that aim to make a positive change towards their local communities. The purpose of the Fund is to support non-profit organisations, community groups or individuals that help transform their local community through enhancing biodiversity, promoting sustainable waste behaviours, protecting or preserving resources and the environment, or using recycled, reused or reclaimed materials.

In 2021 Veolia’s Sustainability Fund received over 100 applications and awarded £27,000 worth of funding to 46 grassroot projects up and down the country, as well as in-kind resources and volunteers. Just a few of these projects include:


  • For Good Food - Building a raspberry garden for adults with learning disabilities in Sutton, South London to make and sell jam to local shops to raise money for Nickel Support 
  • Upcycle Birmingham - Helping the community to upcycle furniture in Birmingham 
  • Camden Beeline - Increasing green space and biodiversity across Camden, North London by creating a connected pollinator pathway of trees, plants and rewilded space. 
  • Edible All Souls Church and Cheriton - Growing an edible and sustainable garden in Folkestone, East Kent
  • Leigh on Sea Larder - Setting up a community fridge in Southend-on-Sea


Rachel Jay, Head of Regional Communications, Veolia UK and Ireland, said: "We are delighted to announce that the Sustainability Fund is back. After supporting some incredible projects last year, we really want to do even more in 2022. The Sustainability Fund aids local communities, non-profit organisations and individuals who want to make a positive change towards our climate crisis and help us build a more sustainable future. We are really excited to see what inspiring, innovative and creative projects apply.”
