Suez SA (formerly Suez Environnement) is a French-based utility company which operates largely in the water and waste management sectors. The company has its head office in La Défense, Paris.[1] In 2015, all the group's brands became Suez.[2]

History[edit]

Formerly an operating division of Suez, the company was spun out as a stand-alone entity as part of the merger to form GDF Suez (now Engie) on 22 July 2008.[3] Engie remained the largest shareholder of the company with a 35% stake.[3] On the stock market, Suez Environnement's share jumped 40% in value on its first day.[4]

In April 2014, Suez Environnement signed 3 major water treatment contracts in India worth 61 million euros.[5] In July 2015, the group Suez Environnement simplified its name to become Suez, after the group GDF-Suez changed its name to Engie, leaving the name Suez available again.[6] In September 2015, Suez acquired Sembcorp's 40% stake in the companies' common joint-venture to provide water treatment and waste management in Australia.[7]

On October 1, 2017 Suez bought the Water & Process Technologies unit from GE Power for 3.4 billion dollars [8] and formed a new business unit called Suez Water Technologies & Solutions. Suez shares are listed on the Euronext exchanges in Paris and Brussels.

On May 14, 2019, Bertrand Camus was appointed as Chief Executive Officer of Suez.[9]

On February 1st, 2022, SUEZ begins a new chapter in its history with its acquisition by the Consortium of shareholders and the appointment of a new CEO, Sabrina Soussan.
