The Group was founded in 1993, as part of the activity by Veolia International – the world’s largest environmental services corporation. It is currently marking more than 28 years of promoting the environment in Israel.
The Group is considered a pioneer in the environmental services and infrastructure sectors, and has a number of groundbreaking achievements to its credit: establishing and operating the Ashkelon desalination plant and the Efeh landfill, partnership in Israel’s first privately owned power station – OPC Mishor Rotem, Advanced Material Recovery Facilities (MRF), and additional large-scale projects.
Veridis provides advanced waste collection services to local authorities, organizations and industry. The Company remains committed to its mission as operator of the broadest logistical infrastructure in Israel for the collection and treatment of all types of waste.
