The Group works alongside the associations Expédition 7ème Continent and Expédition MED. Through expeditions, the former in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans and the latter in the Mediterranean Sea, the objective is to study the scope of plastic pollution in the oceans, secure media coverage of the phenomenon to alert the international community and launch concrete initiatives.
With Good Planet
SUEZ also partners with Good Planet, dedicated to combating threats to the oceans through awareness initiatives such as beach clean-ups and the creation of awareness-rising materials and encourage 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"
