Do you really know… Suez?
11 December 2018
Suez is one of the world leading companies in the field of water and waste management with one key objective: to meet the challenge of preserving natural resources. A human adventure of more than 120 years that continues to be written every day.
The group, which has 90,000 employees in more than 70 countries on 5 continents, works every day to achieve the same ambition: providing the best possible service in the vital fields of water and waste, for people and the planet.
The company’s missions are multiple. First of all, it aims at developing access to resources for everyone as an essential condition in order to provide as many people as possible with access to drinking water with the highest quality and at an affordable price. It also works on optimizing the collection and sorting of waste so that it becomes a new resource.
The company is also concentrating its efforts on optimizing information technology for a more efficient use of resources through real-time management of water and sanitation services, intelligent collection, optimization of plant energy consumption, etc. All these solutions generate significant economic and environmental benefits.
Finally, with 4.3 million tonnes of secondary raw materials back on the market and 10 million people served with drinking water from desalinated seawater, Suez has proven that the revolution in the resource is circular: transforming seawater into drinking water, sludge into renewable energy, waste into energy, etc. By creating new quality resources, Suez avoids drawing on scarce natural resources.
Fun fact 😌: Created by the merger of Suez Lyonnaise des Eaux and Gaz de France, Suez was created in 1858 to drill and operate the Suez Canal. The Suez Canal, since its commissioning, has been a revolution in world trade. This was the beginning of the Group’s industrial adventure and the birth of its name, synonymous with boldness, ambition and innovation.
In line with its innovation policy, Suez is involved in the Grow Together operation leading the way in the diversification of financing sources for SMEs. The group will borrow €100,000 over 24 months on October on December 11, 2018!« go back to posts list
