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.

Defining DEI

Breaking it down, what is diversity, equity and inclusion?

Diversity is the presence of differences that may include race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality, socioeconomic status, language, (dis)ability, age, religious commitment, political perspective or other characteristics. Diversity is a reality, we are all different; and diversity is about both the visible and invisible aspects that makes us who we are. And the truth is, it’s not only what makes us unique, but also what we have in common.


Equity is how we closely examine and promote fairness and impartiality within the procedures, processes and distribution of resources for our employees.


Inclusion is an action: the willingness and the skills to not only understand, accept and value those who may appear different than us, but to maximize all the different dimensions of diversity.


Diversity is a reality, equity is a priority, inclusion is our ambition.

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.
