SUEZ unveils its new sustainability goals


SUEZ has announced its new sustainable development goals for 2027 and beyond, through 24 commitments revolving around three pillars: climate, biodiversity and social responsibility.

In terms of climate commitments, the Group says it is developing a global approach across three levers: contributing to decarbonising energy, reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as well as those of its value chain and adapting top-priority and vulnerable sites operated by the Group to the effects of climate change.

On the social front, the Group says it wishes to contribute to a responsible economy through employment and local development within communities, as well as encourage the development and engagement of its people through employee share ownership.

Alongside the climate and social responsibility pillars, the Group continues that it is stepping up its initiatives in the field of biodiversity, with 10 specific commitments.

With this new roadmap, we are reaffirming the central role of sustainable development in the SUEZ strategy.

A solid governance framework has been created through 43 performance indicators dedicated to monitoring the implementation of these commitments, the Group says. All the indicators will be shared once a year to publicly communicate the progress made.

SUEZ says these commitments will be implemented across all the Group’s activities and in all the geographies in which it operates and will be supported by a solid governance framework at Group level.

Within the framework of the annual non-financial performance statement of the Group, SUEZ says an annual review of the roadmap will be prepared including an audit by an independent third party of the main commitments.

Commenting on the announcement, Sabrina Soussan, Chairman and CEO of SUEZ, said: “With this new roadmap, we are reaffirming the central role of sustainable development in the SUEZ strategy.

“SUEZ is today setting out its pledges with a fresh new ambition around climate change policy and social responsibility, also including ambitious goals in terms of preservation of biodiversity and natural resources.”
