Board Meeting Documents

http://cms-fiona.veolia-transport.net:8080/default/NPS/preview/b_5f6b/wtk_root/us/cat/_meta/pictures/IQM2.jpgAs part of our commitment to environmental sustainability, we have implemented an online portal for our Board Meetings. This system from Intelligent Meeting Management (IQM2) allows us to create documents electronically, edit them, and then publish them for our Board Members’ review—all without wasting paper and energy on printing. We also make these documents available to the public in order to maintain operational transparency.
