SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT, partner of the Convergences World Forum

SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT is a partner of the Convergences World Forum, which is set to take place in Paris from 8-10 September 2014.

A unique occasion bringing together representatives from the public sector, the corporate world and civil society, as well as students and members of the media, the Convergences World Forum is an unmissable event focusing on the challenges of co-constructing a sustainable and fair society.

Launched in 2008, Convergences is Europe’s leading platform for reflection, intended to forge new partnerships between public players, private stakeholders and charitable organisations in order to promote the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and combat poverty and insecurity throughout the world.

  1. A post-2015 global partnership for sustainable consumption and production
