After the first successes of the « La Chapelle » railyard site in the 18th district of Paris and the « Grand Train » in 2016, SNCF welcomes « Ground Control » on the former Charolais railway mail sorting center, in the context of the urban transition program by SNCF Immobilier. This project aims to regive a temporary life to the unused railway grounds as it waits for an urban conversion in response to the new uses and needs of the city.
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.
Faced with growing urbanization and the increasing scarcity of water resources, local authorities are committed to incorporating sustainable development principles into their water management policies. Thanks to its VISIO centers, SUEZ supports local authorities by offering a digital management system for their water and sanitation services.
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 group, in partnership with the Saint-Etienne municipality, was awarded the “Sustainable and United City” Call for Expression of Interest by the National Agency for Urban Renovation (ANRU) within the framework of the Future Investments Program (PIA). SUEZ is developing a next-generation interoperable, open and scalable digital platform that will facilitate citizens’ access to public data while providing the city with quality information.
ENGIE has evolved in order to better meet local expectations and be as close as possible to local issues and authorities. ENGIE helps territories to become:
By collaborating with them to develop tailor-made solutions to address their concerns:

Boost the local economy
10 principles for reinventing a neighbourhood – Lyon Confluence, the first WWF sustainable neighbourhood
WWF France uses on 10 sustainabilty principles from the international “One Planet Living” approach to support the implementation of more sustainable urban projects.
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.
Urbanization continues to reduce the ground’s natural ability to absorb rainwater, increasing the volume of stormwater collected and evacuated by wastewater systems. In a heavy storm, stormwater runoff can overwhelm wastewater system capacity, causing urban flooding and saturating treatment plants. Increasingly untreated stormwater is being discharged directly into the natural environment and becoming a source of pollution. Today it is crucial that cities integrate stormwater management into their urban planning. That’s why SUEZ developed Advanced Solutions for stormwater.
