Veolia’s Sustainability Fund Helps Haringey Bloom!

Veolia, the UK’s leading resource management company, has launched this year’s Sustainability Fund in partnership with Haringey Council on the International Day for Biological Diversity (22 May 2024) to help support people across Haringey to improve their local environments and communities with grants of up to £1,000.


2023 was an incredibly successful year for the Sustainability Fund, with six grassroots projects given over £5,000 funding in Haringey. This year, Veolia will continue to fund great local initiatives that protect and reserve resources in the borough and has doubled its fund pot so even more community groups can benefit.

In previous years, successful projects have delivered long-term social and environmental benefits to local Haringey communities, including:

  • Go Green Month: supporting a range of events and workshops featuring at this major annual community-focused initiative
  • Boro Sole Savers: establishing a local recycling hub aligned to Haringey Borough Women’s FC for football boots and sports shoes to either be recycled or reused by the local community, ensuring participation in sports is accessible to everyone
  • The Green Line Sustainable Fashion Show: educating the Haringey community on how to reinvent their wardrobe through an interactive fashion showcase, workshops and live shopping experience, with recycled, repurposed and up-cycled garments

Veolia’s Sustainability Fund is open to not-for-profit organisations, community groups, or individuals in areas where the company delivers waste and street cleansing services for the community. Up to £1,000 in funding is available per project and applicants can opt to request in-kind resources or volunteers to help them deliver ecological transformation.

Sustainability Fund applications opened on 22 May and they can be made via Veolia’s website at or via Spacehive, Veolia’s crowdfunding partner, at The fund will be open for applications until Monday 30 September.

All applications will be considered, but projects should aim to fulfil at least one of the following criteria: promoting sustainable behaviours (reduce, reuse, recycle); protecting or preserving resources and the environment by using recycled, reused, or reclaimed materials; enhancing biodiversity.

Pascal Hauret, Managing Director, Municipal at Veolia, said :  “I am always thrilled to see projects we support through the Sustainability Fund coming to life, and look forward to reviewing all the creative and inspiring applications for this year that help deliver ecological transformation. We’re proud to be supporting the communities we work in every day to make their local areas even greener.”
