Our strategy relies on an ambitious research and innovation policy goals to make measurable contributions to the resource revolution. This enables our customers to achieve greater efficiency in the environmental management.
The creation of secondary raw materials is at the heart of the new circular economy. It’s a way of addressing the increasing scarcity of natural resources and rising raw materials costs. We’re innovating to accelerate recycling and offer real world solutions to our customers.
As the population grows and urbanisation continues, the pressure on water resources increases. We’re addressing this by developing innovative solutions, like the artificial aquifer recharge, desalination and the reuse of wastewater technology.
Digital technology is an efficient way to approach the environmental issues facing our customers around the world. We constantly innovate to support their initiatives and improve the performance of their facilities.
With climate change, rampant urbanisation and ever stricter regulations, the management of water has become more complex than ever. Backed by our expertise, SUEZ is working to develop new solutions capable of monitoring water networks in real time to continuously improve the quality of the water delivered.
Every year, SUEZ invests in research and innovation projects to improve the quality of water supplies and works hand-in-hand with international regulatory authorities. We develop new technologies to eliminate emerging pollutants in our dedicated research laboratory.
At SUEZ, we’re combating climate change by developing innovative solutions to reduce our customers’ greenhouse gas emissions, to optimise their energy consumption and to encourage the use of high-potential renewables.
SUEZ’s innovation policy is based on various internally-managed programmes and projects, and with a strong commitment to open innovation – shortening development cycles and reducing time-to-market of our products and services. In 2017, we invested €97 million into these programmes.
