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.

For SUEZ, 2017 was a year of deep transformation, with the acquisition of GE Water that will enable the Group to propose the most complete industrial water offer on the market. We are at the cutting edge of activities which are preparing the future and we feel proud to contribute, together with our customers, to building a more sustainable world.
