Job Description



We are at the dawn of the resource revolution. Faced with global population growth, increasing urbanisation and climate change, it is essential to radically change how our resources are managed and used.  SUEZ uses innovation and collaboration to implement smart and sustainable resource management solutions: optimising how water is used thanks to information technologies, creating alternative water resources, recycling and recovering energy from waste.

The Group supplies drinking water to 92 million people, provides wastewater treatment services for 65 million people, collects waste from almost 50 million people, recovers 14 million tonnes of waste per year and generates 5,138 GWh of local and renewable energy. 

From the outset, protecting the environment has been at the heart of what we do. Environmental responsibility is embedded in our business model and strategy as we sustain the value of resources, conserve natural capital and enable the low-carbon economy.

Our values – notably, commitment to the environment – underline this. In all our services, we strive to go beyond regulatory compliance by surpassing environmental standards wherever we operate, reducing our resource use and decarbonising our activities.

In the UK, we are investing in new facilities and advancing technologies such as waste gasification, anaerobic digestion and smart management of water networks, including advanced energy software.

The sustainable value we are creating is significant. Over a year, from waste alone, we generate: 

  • 1.7 million megawatt hours of electricity 
  • 71,000 tonnes of compost from green and food waste 
  • 700,000 tonnes of alternative fuels

Our passion for the environment is enacted through our work, but also biodiversity action plans with measures to encourage plant and wildlife at all our sites.
