Preserve biodiversity

Pollution from human activities and changes in ecosystems are contributing to the reduction in biodiversity. Aware of its role, SUEZ affirms its commitment to preserve biodiversity through a concrete action plan.

Our commitments

Biodiversity, a major strategic issue

SUEZ takes action to protect biodiversity, in support of its customers and within its organization.

In France, the Group's commitment centers around three objectives in line with the National strategy for Biodiversity.

Our actions

Integrate biodiversity into the management of our facilities

Since 2010, SUEZ has worked with the French NGO France Nature Environnement to develop joint initiatives related to water resource protection and biodiversity conservation at the sites operated by the Group.


SUEZ has also formed partnerships with Guadeloupe National Park, the League for the Protection of Birds (France) and the National Museum of Natural History (France) to promote biodiversity at the waste treatment plants that it manages.

Finance projects to promote biodiversity

In 1997, SUEZ created a fund to support the environmental and social initiatives of communities in the vicinity of the Group's sites in the United Kingdom. Since 2005, this fund has conducted a support program dedicated entirely to financing projects to promote biodiversity. It has supported 3,750 environmental and community projects since its creation for a total of more than €140 million.

Take action in support of biodiversity

Together with the state of New York, SUEZ has developed a "Biodiversity and Wildlife Policy". This policy has led to the implementation of 86 action plans aimed at protecting and restoring biodiversity in and around the Group's water treatment sites in this region of the world.

Better understand and integrate biodiversity issues

SUEZ has partnered with the Natural Heritage Department (NHD) of the National Museum of Natural History (MNHN) in Paris, France since 2008. The goal is to understand the challenges related to biodiversity conservation and better incorporate them into the Group's facilities management practices. The MNHN, which is a both a research organization, a center of expertise and a nature data manager, mobilizes numerous national experts.
