We innovate to address the challenges relating to water and waste

The challenges relating to water and waste are becoming increasingly pressing. To respond to this and better anticipate the needs of our customers and partners, we are stepping up our innovation in ways of protecting the environment.

The environmental services industry is at a turning point in its development. Climate change, the scarcity of resources, the energy crisis and the return of inflation require new solutions:

  • faced with the risk of shortages, we need to prevent wastage and explore new ways of producing drinking water 
  • faced with the scarcity of resources, we need to get the full value out of waste and pave the way for new materials loops 
  • faced with climate change, we need to develop new, low-carbon energy solutions and services in order to give everyone access to renewable energy 
  • faced with new forms of pollution, we need to explore new drinking water treatment processes.

With 1,100 experts around the world, close to 1,700 patents, 10 research centres and excellence and an innovation drive at all levels of the company, we are committed to speeding up the major transitions by capitalising on our strengths.
