Alongside WWF, SUEZ commits to WWF France's ‘Reinventing cities’ initiative. It aims to accelerate the reduction of cities and regions’ environmental footprints through sustainable resource management.
With 50% of the current global population living in cities and 70% by 2050, they have become humanity’s main ecosystem. Energy and natural resource intensive, they emit 70% of global CO2 from end energy consumption. The ecological transition is mainly playing out in city centres, where development policies and innovation take root. In its ‘Reinventing cities’ initiative, WWF France is working with public and private stakeholders to promote sustainable city models. The challenge is twofold: to reduce the country's ecological footprint while improving residents’ quality of life.
"It is urgent that we rethink our models to make our resource-intensive cities compatible with the limits of one planet. This partnership is an opportunity to reinvent cities and regions and reduce their ecological footprint, to guarantee citizens’ well-being." Pascal Canfin, WWF France CEO.
