We're leading the resource revolution

In a fast growing world, our society is facing many challenges. Climate change, galloping urbanization and changing lifestyles are all contributing to the increased scarcity and deterioration of the natural resources which are essential to life and to the future. It has now become essential to develop new growth models which consume fewer resources. This ambition is at the heart of SUEZ’s strategy. Every day, we help our customers to use and recover resources instead of consuming them. The circular economy is indispensable and we are one of its leaders.

Our ambition

Demographic and urban growth, global warming and natural resources shortage have all prompted a worldwide drive to shift towards a growth model that consumes fewer resources. The reinvention of our modes of management, production and consumption of resources is at the very heart of our strategy and of our ambition to become the leader of the resource revolution.
