A representative of Suez Environnement said that the group wants to expand its investments in Morocco during his
meeting with the Minister of Energy, Mines, Water and Environment on Thursday.
The French-based utility company is the second- biggest publicly traded water company in Europe which operates largely in the water treatment and waste management sectors. It aims to further develop its presence by increasing its investments in several areas including water desalination and the treatment and recovery of waste. The company also has been winning major contracts in other countries like Egypt and China.
The minister welcomed the partnership with Suez Environnement since it will help accomplish their goal of exerting every effort to promote investments in Morocco which in turn will augment job creation and sustainable development.
It was also discussed during the meeting that Morocco places utmost importance to environmental problems, particularly landfill management and waste recovery. The government also considers capitalizing on water desalination as an additional way to cope with climate changes affecting the mobilization of surface water and groundwater.
Moreover, the minister reiterated that water desalination is one of their priorities and will focus on coupling it with renewable energy.
