SUEZ has pioneered the Command and Control Center, an innovative urban supervision tool that facilitates an enhanced management of the public space by consolidating and analyzing the data generated by a city’s operations: traffic regulation, video-surveillance, street lighting, emergency services, and more. This trailblazing solution is being piloted in the Dijon metropolitan area, and will transform this city with a population of 260,000 into the first smart and connected city of its kind in France.
AQUADVANCED® Urban Drainage is a real-time software solution made up of three modules for the continuous monitoring of the sewerage system, the prevention of flooding, the protection of the natural environment and the optimisation of the existing regulation and treatment infrastructures. These technologies are used in the smart control centres that centralise and analyse the information and the alerts sent by these systems.
SUEZ is fully committed to upholding the right to water and sanitation. The Group works with local authorities to advance three objectives: improving access to services in disadvantaged areas, ensuring long-term water access for people in precarious situations, and providing access to essential services and collective sanitation for all.
As a result of population growth, urbanization and economic development, global waste production is increasing exponentially. To address the social, economic and environmental challenges that step from this production, SUEZ has developed a suite of five flexible and complementary solutions to optimize its waste recycling and recovery services.
Developing an “Urban BIM” data valorisation strategy: the digital avatar of the city at the centre of a multi-scale process, ranging from building BIM to territorial BIM, industrialising the use of data around third-party services. This approach opens up a new dimension in the management and visualisation of territorial data. The multi-scale approach helps us to better conceive the urban environment, understand the integration of buildings into complex environments (smart grids and eco-districts) and cross-check data (urban and building scale).

Do4Africa or Digital Observer for Africa (www.do4africa.org) is a platform that identifies and lists innovative and digital projects in Africa. Furthermore, the platform collects open datasets relating to the African continent.

Located in the city of Sémé-Podji in Benin, Wexity is the first digital tool specially designed to enable local authorities to manage all urban objects: networks, housing, environment, risks, local economy, equipment and so on, thus serving the needs of sustainable urban development. Today, only complex expert systems requiring qualified personnel exist. Wexity breaks with this logic of complexity.
Since 2015, the City and Eurometropolis of Strasbourg, in association with GESCOD (Grand Est Solidarités et Coopérations pour le Développement) and their partners, have been working with the Douala Urban Community on the construction and renovation of 47 km of storm drains, to strengthen their project management and local governance capacities in the field of urban sanitation.
With its wealth of industrial and port heritage, the Dunkirk conurbation has intensified its commitment to an industrial, environmental and social energy transition.

- To preserve the appeal of the area while engaging in a genuine economic and sustainable transition
- To promote a balanced environment, conducive to the development of its attractiveness.
