2020 World Expo in Dubai SUEZ a partner of the France Pavilion will present its cutting edge solutions and technologies in promotion of sustainable cities and connected regions

The SUEZ Group will participate in the Expo 2020 Dubai whose theme is “Connecting Minds, Building the Future.” As a committed player in the environmental transition, the Group will be presenting France’s vision of the ecological and solidarity-based transition, its innovations and solutions in favor of the circular economy and environmental preservation at the France Pavilion, whose theme is “Lights, Light”. 25 million visitors from over 190 countries are expected throughout the course of the event, from October 1, 2021 through March 31, 2022.

On the occasion of the France Pavilion’s Biodiversity Fortnight, which marks the opening of the Dubai World Expo, a panel of the SUEZ Group experts will present emblematic solutions for preserving the water, air and soil elements, which meet the Sustainable Development challenges defined by the United Nations and the Sustainable Development objectives set by SUEZ in its 2017 – 2021 roadmap. Four priorities have been defined: to be collaborative, open and responsible company, to be a leader in the circular and low-carbon economy; to support its customers' environmental transition with concrete solutions; and to contribute to the common good. As such, SUEZ has raised its commitments, in 2019, to ensure a 45% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions (compared to 30% previously) in line with the + 1.5°C trajectory (goal of carbon neutrality in 2050), and has pledged to avoid approximately 20 million tons of CO2 emissions each year for its customers, and this by 2030.

As an international showcase, the Dubai World Expo will allow clients from around the world to discover the Group's recent innovations, such as:

  • Origins.Earth, a tool to assess the cities’ greenhouse gas emissions and implement low-carbon strategies to combat climate disruption
  • Biomimetics and biomonitoring, nature-inspired solutions to preserve biodiversity
  • Advanced technologies to improve the performance of water networks to shape more sustainable cities by protecting the water resource
