Community Engagement

Giving Back to Our Friends & Neighbors

We strive to truly make a difference in the world, and that starts here in our communities. From employee volunteering to educational programs and philanthropic partnerships, SUEZ North America dedicates our time, dollars and talents to making the neighborhoods we serve better places to live.

Charitable Donations

As an involved member of our communities and a steward of natural resources, we focus our philanthropic efforts on non-profit organizations related to environmental causes. Each year, we donate approximately $1.5 million in direct contributions and in-kind services to hundreds of local environmental organizations and groups across the country, helping to protect our natural resources.

Volunteering in Our Communities

SUEZ employees can be found rebuilding houses in Jersey City, NJ and donating blood in Boise, ID. We’re standing alongside law enforcement in our communities during National Night Out and cleaning up alongside our neighbors on Earth Day. We volunteer time cleaning up the shorelines of lakes, rivers, oceans and waterways across the country, and give back to local organizations that our neighbors count on when times are tough.

Empowering Leaders of Tomorrow

SUEZ believes youth education and outreach are some of the best ways to positively impact our communities. Our goal is to help equip young minds with the knowledge to be successful and make informed decisions about water and the environment. Through charitable donations and employee volunteering, SUEZ is dedicated to making a difference.
