A multinational French company operating in the fields of water, waste management, energy and transport services. The company holds full control of Veolia Environnement Israel. Veolia Environnement Israel provides services to the Israeli ministry of Defence.

Through its subsidiary - Veolia Transdev, the company has a 5% share in the CityPass consortium, which was contracted to establish and operate the light rail project in Jerusalem. The light rail was designed to connect the city of Jerusalem with the illegal settlements around it. Additionally, Veolia Transdev fully owns Connex Jerusalem, the company which operates the trains.

In 2010, Veolia Transdev (then Veolia Transportation) declared it will sell its shares in Citypass to Egged and 80% of the shares in Connex Jerusalem. Yet, as to February 2014 the sale was not executed.

Through its subsidiary Veolia Environnement Services Israel (which has bought T.M.M. Integrated Recycling Services), Veolia Environnement owns and operates the Tovlan Landfill in the occupied Jordan Valley. The Waste transferred to Landfill originates from recycle factories from within Israel and from settlements in the West Bank. The company uses captured Palestinian land and natural resources for the needs of Israeli settlements from both side of the green line. The Tovlan landfill is operated by Veolia Environnement Services Israel's subsidiaries TMM and Y.R.A.V Sherutei Noy 1985.

In a response to an enquiry by Who Profits On October 10th, 2011, the Israeli Civil Administration enumerated eight Israeli companies which hold permits to transfer waste to the Tovlan landfill. Other than T.M.M and Y.R.A.V, another subsidiary of Veolia holds a permit to transfer waste to Tovlan landfill: Ramnir, a subsidiary of T.M.M. 

Veolia Water Services (VW) Israel, a subsidiary of System vivendi water France, operates Ayalon sewage treatment institute, which collects sewage from the illegal settlement of Modi'in Illit.
