DECEMBER 2015 SHAREHOLDER SURVEY: SUEZ’S COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, A KEY FACTOR IN LONG-TERM PERFORMANCE

Jean-Louis Chaussade, SUEZ CEO, said:
“SUEZ’s efforts in terms of sustainable development and responsible performance are recognised by our individual stakeholders – this is something to be proud of, and I thank them for their loyalty!

SUEZ is convinced that voluntary approaches from companies are necessary in order to achieve a major agreement during COP21, and has strengthened its ambitious objectives in support of the climate and of sustainable resource management.“
