SUEZ and ECCT Organise Kaohsiung Beach Clean-up to Help Beautify Taiwan’s Shores
The world’s oceans are filled with plastic, threatening marine life and human health. It is projected that plastic waste that flows into our oceans will triple by 2040 to 29 million tonnes1. SUEZ’s commitment to preserve the oceans is underpinned by the Group’s 2017 – 2021 Sustainable Development Roadmap to be a leader in the circular and low-carbon economy. In Taiwan, where SUEZ NWS provides essential water and waste treatment services, the Group actively develops local solutions and engages its employees and stakeholders to contribute to a world ocean free of marine litter.
The Kaohsiung Chiji beach clean-up campaign kicks off in the presence of ECCT CEO Freddie Hoglund, Mayor of Kaohsiung Chen Chi-Mai, Kaohsiung City Government Environmental Protection Bureau Director Chang Jui-Hun, Ocean Affairs Council Secretary General Liu Kuo Lieh, and SUEZ NWS Ren Wu Plant General Manager Kuo Yi-Chang.
