Preserving the world’s oceans is a significant commitment under SUEZ’s 2017-2021 Sustainable Development Road Map. We’re using our expertise to limit pollution of the marine environment through influencing local public policy, making cities’ water networks more intelligent and supplying our customers with tangible solutions for transitioning to a more circular waste life cycle model.
Conducting expeditions alongside Expédition 7ème Continent in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans and Expédition MED in the Mediterranean Sea, we study the scope of plastic pollution in the oceans, secure media coverage to generate public awareness of the phenomenon and launch concrete initiatives.
Working with Good Planet, we’re combating threats to our oceans through awareness initiatives such as beach clean-ups, education materials and encouraging community involvement.
"It is by coming together that we will be able to find areas of improvement and develop effective solutions. It is high time that we understand, explain and act"

On 8 June 2017, we launched #SUEZ4ocean, a worldwide mobilisation campaign for World Oceans Day. The campaign targeted our 84,000 employees, enlisting them to gather as many people as possible to clean plastic waste on shorelines.
The below examples are just some of wide range of solutions SUEZ offers to control water quality, limit pollution sources and protect and restore coastlines.
