Urban development, demographic growth and climate change have serious impacts on stocks of resources around the world, in particular on water. We are an increasingly higher number of people to share water resources, which at the same time, are becoming increasingly scarce. In order to preserve our way of life, our consumer habits and production systems, it is essential to preserve our water resources.
Our aspirations to protect the environment are intensifying and both consumers and water treatment operators are taking action in favour of water cycle management which respects our resources.
Making a collective effort to protect the quality and quantity of our water resources has become a priority. This is why SUEZ deploys a global approach taking into account the whole water cycle.
To foster the development of environmentally-sound solutions and look forward to changes in regulatory requirements, SUEZ assists decision-makers and operators in the sustainable management of water resources based on a circular economy model.
Drinking water production consumes resources, where raw water is collected for treatment to become drinkable and distributed to consumers. We deliver solutions that protect water resources by limiting the impact of extraction:
Wastewater and stormwater are potential sources of pollution when they are discharged into the natural environment. We support progress in regulatory frameworks by developing advanced technologies to optimise the treatment of wastewater and stormwater to prevent contamination of raw water resources:
60 to 90% of water consumed is taken from water tables. These resources are therefore severely affected and can suffer periods of drought. Together, these two factors can cause levels to drop. We deliver efficient solutions to recharge water tables:
We deliver solutions and smart services for dynamic, forward-looking management of water resources:
We deploy sensors in the natural environment, inside factories and across the water network to measure the water quality in real time:
All data captured by sensors are collected and integrated into the smart management system we deliver:
50% of cases of bathing site water pollution are due to failures in the sewerage system. We deliver preventive and corrective solutions to protect coastlines and bathing sites. Preserving the beauty of the coastline is also a question of modernising the equipment made available to residents and visitors in order to improve user comfort and satisfaction:
Beyond bathing sites, protecting the heritage of a coastline as a whole is essential to the attractiveness of certain regions. We deliver innovative solutions to preserve the key features of our coastlines.
We act in close cooperation with consumers to raise their awareness to the issues of preserving natural water resources and to enable them to manage their water use responsibly.
For several years we have innovated to aid farmers and industrial companies to preserve water in order to secure the productivity and profitability of their activities.
Of the 165 billion m3 of wastewater collected and processed annually throughout the world, only 2% are reused at present. The treatments we propose enable the reuse of wastewater for various non-domestic purposes.
We use tried and tested techniques to recycle wastewater while preventing the discharge of polluting agents. Innovative processes produce treated water of sufficiently high quality to enable its reuse:
We work closely with our customers to define the best solutions together.
