Partnerships for the “smart cities” development in Bristol

Through partnership agreements with UCL (University College London) and UWE (University of the West of England), SUEZ environnement has undertaken a vast research programme seeking to develop smart technologies that can improve water service management. This particular programme is concerned with exploring possibilities for improving the performance of the network through the management of data generated by smart networks.

Training and know-how transfer contract in Azerbaijan

The skill-transfer and training contract signed in May 2014 and launched in September 2014 between SUEZ environnement and Azersu, the Azerbaijani public operator for water and sanitation services, is intended to help the customer strengthen its skills and knowledge with respect to the management of water and sanitation services, so that it can improve its operational performance. The five-year contract includes a phase of assessment of the company’s operational maturity, using the WIKTI methodology, the definition of an action plan encompassing the transfer of expertise, and the delivery of a total of 41,000 days of training.

A new Chair in business administration on water management

SUEZ environnement has been in Nice for many years through both its Water and Waste activities. Now, it is also contributing to the training of water sector professionals. A new business administration chair, entitled “Water uses and economic rationality for a Smart & Sustainable Mediterranean city”, will be dedicated to developing scientific projects for analysing, understanding and managing the water cycle. The chair, which has been created thanks to a partnership agreement between SUEZ environnement, Nice Sophia Antipolis University and the Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolis, will be part of the Mediterranean Institute for Risk, the Environment and Sustainable Development (IMREDD), a major player in the future Eco-Vallée de la Plaine du Var eco-campus.

Commitment 11 : spread and share our expertise and knowledge

For several decades, the world has been confronted by challenges of major importance and growing complexity. Whether they may concern climate change, air, water and soil pollution or issues of access to essential services in Southern cities undergoing population explosions, the scale and the consequences of these issues remind us every day the extent to which they are correlated and how much we need to unite our forces to find effective and sustainable solutions.

2016 targets


Train over 100 professionals and managers from water and sanitation services in developing countries.


Support environmental and social initiatives in the regions and increase the number of people we reach with our Sustainable Development awareness-raising campaigns(1). The distribution of case studies on the economic and social impacts of our activities in the regions contributes to this objective.
