A Group committed to its customers
An exemplary supplier, SUEZ entered the CDP Supplier Engagement Leader Board in 2018, which lists the suppliers most committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in their value chains. This reflects the Group s constant efforts to engage in dialogue with its partners about climate and establish joint innovation and mutual awareness of the climate imperative. SUEZ also has a Gold Medal rating from the Ecovadis rating agency, which specialises in evaluating suppliers sustainable development performance for global supply chains. In 2019, the Group was among the 1% top-rated companies by Ecovadis with a rating of 72/100.
A circular economy pioneer working for the environment
In 2018, SUEZ was recognised several times by the United Nations for its role in the transition towards the circular economy in order to preserve the climate and natural resources. At the United Nations Global Compact Business Leaders Summit in New York in September 2018, Jean- Louis Chaussade, the Group s CEO, was named a Sustainable Development Goals Pioneer for Climate Action through Resource Efficiency.
SUEZ also joined the select circle of United Nations Global Compact LEAD companies in 2018 for its activities within the Global Compact Low Carbon and Resilient Development and Water Security through Stewardship platforms. This coalition consists of the 30 most advanced members of the Global Compact in terms of sustainable development at global level.
Best-in-class ambition on the main indices
SUEZ is listed on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the tenth consecutive year. In 2019, the Group was placed third on the global ranking of companies in the Utilities sector and awarded the Silver Class distinction. This evaluation reinforces the Group s leading position on the Euronext VigeoEiris, STOXX and FTSE4Good indices.
The Group also has an A rating from MSCI, the Goldman Sachs ESG index, which positively evaluates the SUEZ Group s circular economy- based business model and its capacity to reduce its customers greenhouse gas emissions by recovering materials and energy from their waste. The Group s climate commitments, validated by the Science Based Targets initiative, establish SUEZ s pioneering role in its sector in the field of fighting climate change, as shown by its three-year presence in the A-List of the CDP extra-financial rating agency s Climate questionnaire.
With the strength of its strategy s increasingly resolute focus on sustainable development, SUEZ is consolidating its presence on the international ESG indices and seeing its pioneering role rewarded by the UN.
