SUEZ wins multiple excellence awards in China’s water industry

Recently, SUEZ was recognised as one of the 2021 Top 10 Most Influential Water Companies in China – a flagship annual award of China’s water industry. This makes SUEZ the only foreign company to have received the award each year since the award was created 19 years ago.  At the same time, three SUEZ joint ventures, Macao Water, Jiangsu Sino French, and Chongqing Sino French, received the Most Socially Responsible Water Company in China designation for their exemplary performance and social impact. Among them, Macao Water and Jiangsu Sino French have been recipients of this award for 10 consecutive years since its first edition in 2012.

Additionally, five of SUEZ’s water treatment infrastructure projects in China were selected as case studies on best practices in the water industry, and the Tangjiatuo wastewater treatment plant in Chongqing was also recognised by the industry as a benchmark for sophisticated operation and management of wastewater treatment.



Since its inception in 2003, the Top 10 Most Influential Water Companies in China award has been widely recognised among Chinese water companies as a credible and authoritative source, with strong industry influence. The 2021 selection attracted entries from approximately 400 water companies. SUEZ was recognised as a “Model Foreign-invested Water Company” for its innovative solutions developed over the course of nearly five decades of operations in China, its specialised water operations and management services for municipal and industrial customers, and its prominent role in unlocking the value of China’s water industry and contributing to China’s 2030/2060 decarbonization goals.

Steve Clark, CEO of SUEZ Asia, said, “Over the past 50 years of our steady growth in China, SUEZ has built solid and amicable relations with governments and industrial partners. We have developed and offered our world-class technology, operational and managerial expertise, and innovative solutions for climate change mitigation and sustainable resource management to governments and industrial customers in China. We are incredibly proud and excited to witness the rapid and dynamic growth of China’s environmental industry, and I am confident that foreign companies will remain important contributors to China’s sustainable development going forward. In 2022, SUEZ embarked on a new journey, one in which we have continued to prioritise business development, producing landmark solutions in water and waste management with local partners and maintaining our unwavering commitment to China’s sustainable development.”
