Eligible activities must meet at least one of our two key focus areas below:

- Improve the sustainability of local communities
You can read more about all our previous supported projects on the funded projects page.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are that United Nations’ blueprint for achieving a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The Goals are interconnected and supported by targets that are to be achieved by 2030.
SUEZ is committed to playing our part in achieving the SDGs, and our entire business strategy supports this. The SUEZ Community Grants Program 2019 is particularly closely aligned with eight of the 17 SDGs, and all applications for funding will be assessed against their contribution to these goals. For more information about the goals, you can download the Sustainable Development Goals information pack:
We aim to support a range of environmental initiatives that align with our core philosophy of creating a sustainable future. The program is specifically intended to support organisations located in the communities in which we provide services in recycling and recovery, and operate our facilities, both recycling, recovery and water services.
Each project will be assessed on its merits against the SUEZ Community Grants eligibility criteria. We recommend that you thoroughly review the grant eligibility criteria when deciding whether to apply.
You can find a complete list of all previously supported projects on our dedicated page Community Grants.
