Changing our behaviour for more sustainable uses
Dem'Eau and Starwaste, behavioural innovation for more efficient uses
The Dem'Eau programme to construct a comprehensive range of "water saving" products, tailored to the practices of each user category and the realities of each region
The Starwaste programme to support the "jeter moins, trier mieux" (‘throw less, sort better’) initiative.
Performance contracts, "next generation" contracts focused on energy efficiency
Less water consumed and less waste produced: this transformation of uses involves rethinking the economic models of our two markets. For several years now, SUEZ has been a pioneer in devising and implementing new types of contract based on efficiency targets: performance contracts.
The contract signed at the end of 2021 with the communauté d’agglomération du Grand Montauban is the first household and similar waste performance contract in France. It includes a waste reduction target of at least 10% by 2028, including mainly bulky waste, green waste, residual household waste and selective packaging collection.
The contract signed with the Bassin de Brive in 2021 was the first in France relating to water efficiency, which links SUEZ's remuneration to the annual decrease in volumes. It lays forth an ambitious goal: a 21% reduction in the amount of water drawn from the natural environment within 7 years. How does it work? By combining SUEZ's expertise in the area in terms of detecting and repairing leaks on networks, but also in communication and user awareness.
