International Conference MARINE/ MARITIME SPATIAL PLANNING 2017 - SUEZ

SUEZ is a partner of the International Conference on Marine/Maritime Spatial Planning, which will be held in Paris from 15 to 17 March 2017.

This is the second time the conference has been held, and is organised by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC), which is affiliated to UNESCO.

The event is an opportunity to encourage coordination and cooperation between the range of stakeholders in attendance, who will be able to improve their knowledge of coastal and ocean resources.

This information will be the cornerstone of developing a sustainable approach to managing these resources, protecting marine ecosystems as a result.

The voice of SUEZ Collaborators

Two experts will give talks to make the Group's voice heard:

  • Laurent Vigier, General Manager of Actimar (SUEZ Consulting). He will speak on 15 March between 5:00 and 6:20 p.m. on the theme of 'Engaging stakeholders in MSP'. His presentation will cover the Group's offshore and oil rig offerings.
  • Thierry Ohayon, SERvice d'Assainissement Marseille Métropole (SERAMM). He will speak on 16 March between 6:00 and 7:30 p.m. at the Communication Workshop social event. He will discuss SUEZ's solutions to combat plastic pollution, giving examples from the techniques in use in Marseille.

Choosing the circular economy and acting accordingly

Sustainable water management is directly linked to the issue of climate. This conference is a chance for SUEZ to reiterate its 12 climate commitments, which highlight its position on environmentally friendly management of all resources.

This position has concrete applications in the form of solutions to protect the oceans and coast.

The list below features a number of examples:




  • The ECOSEASTEM project, which combats pollution caused by plastic microfibres.


  • Aquarenova, an initiative to restore the Bas-Gapeau alluvial water table near Hyères, France.
