Global player in water infrastructure, SUEZ, has announced a Principal Sponsorship with Ozwater’23, Australia’s most anticipated industry event, as well as the largest water conference and exhibition in the Southern Hemisphere. 

Held from 10-12 May, the Australian Water Association’s Ozwater event supports a program of speakers, papers and workshops by people working in the water and wastewater industries. 

Making a splash

Echoing Ozwater’23’s theme, United by Water, SUEZ plans to demonstrate how it’s supporting its customers through their ecological transitions, as well as helping them build resilient and sustainable water management services for their communities.

For SUEZ, water is the universal element that connects us all. It is a symbol of unity, reminding us of our interconnectedness and our shared responsibility to protect this precious resource. United by the life-giving power of water, SUEZ believes we can build a brighter and more sustainable future for generations to come.

The company plans to share its message with industry leaders and professionals who share its passion for protecting this vital resource and ensuring a better future for all.

United by Water

The 2023 theme celebrates water’s vital role in connecting people through economic growth, supporting healthy ecosystems, encouraging industry collaboration and touching every aspect of global development. 

During the event, SUEZ aims to highlight the importance of prioritising innovation, as the global water sector faces significant environmental and climate change challenges. By investing in R&D, prioritising procurement, using digital technologies and adopting a multi-tiered approach to sustainability, SUEZ says that utilities can proactively mitigate environmental risks and meet service demand. 

In line with Ozwater’23’s theme, SUEZ’s focus on growing its innovation and sustainability practices offers new ways of conserving finite water supplies, creating new customer resources and maintaining asset quality.
