Diversity and inclusion

Spanning five continents, our team casts a wide net across many cultures, lifestyles and backgrounds. These vast differences make us interesting while our Ten Commitments to Social & Environmental Responsibility bind us together.
Diversity at SUEZ

"Diversity is the one true thing we all have in common. Celebrate it every day." - Anonymous

As one of the nation’s leading environmental companies, we’ve assembled a multi-talented team of employees throughout North America.


Diversity and Inclusion are vital parts of our DNA. While discussion usually revolves around the importance of diversity, SUEZ understands that inclusion is equally as important, if not more so. We’ve made it our mission as a socially responsible company to foster a culture of inclusion and acceptance, where all employees are engaged and free to embrace their uniqueness.

Diversity council

At SUEZ, diversity means breaking down barriers and embracing individuals from every walk of life.

Our Diversity and Inclusion Council strives to maintain an environment of inclusion that embraces everyone regardless of his or her race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, thinking style, religion, etc.

In addition to governing our Business Resource Groups, the Council drives and supports SUEZ’ overall Diversity and Inclusion Strategy by offering an array of perspectives and insights that keep diversity of thought at our forefront.

Business resource groups

SUEZ Business Resource Groups ensure an inclusive and open environment.

We do this by providing professional and personal development opportunities for all employees through networking, training seminars, special events and more. They also provide employees an opportunity to grow their leadership skills.

Which Group Could Be Right for You?

  • The Women’s Leadership Network fast-tracks advancement opportunities for all women by helping them achieve success in the community, marketplace and industry.
  • The United Veterans Network encourages individuals to recognize the value of military experience and training in the workplace, in addition to supporting veterans’ causes throughout the community.
  • LYNC offers opportunities for personal and professional growth including Lunch and Learns, peer coaching and brainstorming sessions, conversations with senior leaders and group volunteering events.
  • T.R.A.C.E. (Together for Resource Awareness, Conservation, & Environment) promotes progressive ideas from colleagues to improve efficiency and reduce the environmental impact of our daily activities, whether at work or at home.

Employees may join as many groups as they choose, and are encouraged to suggest additional groups that would advance our mission to promote Diversity and Inclusion.
