In 2008, when we published our first Sustainable Development Road Map, we established 4 priorities, broken down into 12 commitments in terms of environmental, social and corporate responsibility performance, together with objectives for the end of 2012. The Group’s Sustainable Development reports, published annually, presented the results achieved and identified best practices in connection with these commitments. Our performance is assessed regularly by non-financial ratings agencies. In four years, significant progress has been made.
We are currently entering the second stage in our Road Map, with new commitments which reaffirm our ambition to contribute to a more sustainable growth through the management of major water and waste cycles. Our new Road Map also reflects increasing demands in relation to social and corporate responsibility, and a renewed dialogue with all our stakeholders. The commitments and objectives for 2012–2016 were approved by SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT’s Executive Committee on October 8th 2012 and presented to the Board of Directors on December 12th 2012 after review by the Ethics and Sustainable Development Committee.
The company provides innovative solutions to millions of people and industries in the drinking water, wastewater treatment and waste management fields.
