RY At a time when environmental performance is becoming essential for the health of businesses, SUEZ is growing strongly in the industrial market.

202 The Science Based Targets initiative has approved the GHG reduction targets of 202 companies worldwide

Optimised resource management solutions in industrial markets

The Group is strengthening its presence in the food- processing market. In Morocco, NABC (North Africa Bottling Company, which bottles Coca-Cola) has just entrusted waste management at its four factories to SUEZ, which also supports Lesieur Cristal, Nestlé, Mondelez, Pepsi, Danone and Nespresso via a circular economy partnership to recycle coffee pods. In Brazil, Mexico and Costa Rica, SUEZ supplies leading producers of drinks, sugar and ethanol with equipment, services and packaging products to optimise water management in production processes. In the oil and gas markets, the Group s dynamism, thanks to the widening of the WTS membrane technology range and its product innovations in separating water from oil, is being demonstrated on several continents: in Brazil, it supplies Modec, a global supplier and operator of floating offshore platforms, with a full range of treatment solutions including desalination units and is opening an innovation and development laboratory in Rio de Janeiro to test custom solutions and offer them to industrial companies in the sector. In Saint Petersburg, during the 2018 International Economic Forum, SUEZ reinforced its collaboration with Rosneft by signing a strategic cooperation agreement to encourage the technological development and deployment of programmes to manage water, wastewater and waste at its refineries and petrochemical plants.

Custom services to reinforce the environmental leadership of committed companies

As part of the global agreement protocol signed in 2017 with L Oreal to contribute to its ambitious environmental performance commitments, SUEZ signed specific contracts in 2018 for effluent treatment and recycling and for the recovery of waste from several factories and a distribution centre. In France, SUEZ will build effluent treatment plants for the L Oreal factories in Vichy (Allier) and Caudry (Nord) and operate them for three years. In Mexico, SUEZ will rehabilitate and extend the effluent treatment plant for the Xochimilco factory in southern Mexico City. These plants will be equipped with a membrane treatment process so that treated effluents can be reused on site.

RecyC√Ębles, the result of a joint venture between SUEZ and Nexans in 2008, has become the European leader in cable recycling and recovery in the space of 10 years. Every year, approximately 30,000 tonnes of cables are recovered at SUEZ s Nord eco-centre in Noyelles-Godault and transferred to specialist processing channels, including the production of new cables by Nexans. By 2020, the site aims to reach its maximum processing capacity of 36,000 tonnes of cables recovered every year by creating a second crushing line in 2018, while Nexans is extending its partnership with SUEZ by three years to align cable production with the circular economy approach from the design stage.
