As a key player in the circular economy and expert in the recovery of all forms of waste, SUEZ assists local authorities across the whole value chain through the phases of collection, sorting and recovery, through to resale. Ever-increasingly innovative solutions are implemented to transform waste into secondary raw materials or renewable energy, enabling local authorities to lead efforts to secure sustainable development and benefit from new revenue sources in their region.
Contribute to the environmental and energy transition of your local region
The demand for renewable energy, like that for secondary raw materials, is very buoyant. Collecting household waste for transformation into new secondary raw materials is becoming as much an economic issue as an environmental one, as the recovery of waste helps us preserve the planet's natural capital, curb greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the volumes of waste stored. Local authorities are now key players in the circular economy by creating local recovery cycles. They also enjoy new sources of revenue from the recovery of materials and energy.
