About us

SUEZ’s story in Asia began 70 years ago with our involvement in the design, build and operations of the water treatment facilities in Southeast Asia. Our footprint then expanded to China nearly 50 years ago.

 

In Asia, and especially in China, SUEZ has become the partner of choice for municipal and industrial clients. We help companies, governments and communities develop innovative and resilient solutions across water management, recycling and recovery, soil remediation and air quality management, making a positive impact on the environment, on community health, and on the climate. We’re recognized as one of the most influential players in the field and as a benchmark of excellence in the environmental services industry.
Existing Challenges in Asia

Today, Asia, has become the engine of world economic growth. At the same time, trends like climate change, digital transformation, demographic shifts, and growing public expectations for better quality of life have given rise to a multitude of challenges and significant changes:

  • Asia is by far the largest and most populous continent, accounting for 60% of the world’s population;
  • Increasingly frequent floods, droughts, and extreme weather events threaten local environments and regional climates;
  • Climate change is set to drastically worsen water scarcity in areas where water is already in short supply.


China, together with other Southeast Asian countries, is stepping up efforts to address climate change, by constantly seeking innovative solutions to promote sustainable development. To meet the many climate challenges, we must start by preserving and restoring the essential elements of our environment: water, soil, and air. We must also optimize resource management in municipalities and industries through resilient and innovative solutions and smart city initiatives that improve environmental and economic performance and contribute to carbon neutrality goals.
