SUEZ is pursuing its strategy to develop new services, in particular in recycling and waste recovery with cloud-based, full-service waste and recycling company, Rubicon Global.
SUEZ led Rubicon’s current funding round, which has raised more than $50m. Rubicon is a cloud-based, full-service waste and recycling company focused on sustainability.
SUEZ and Rubicon will partner on technology and data, accelerating the development and deployment of Rubicon’s proprietary cloud-based hauler management platform, customer portal and mobile apps.
In Europe, SUEZ aims to accelerate the digital transformation of its Recycling &Recovery Division, by improving its customer portal and creating digital platforms dedicated to scattered waste volumes.
“SUEZ is developing its offer to propose disruptive models and solutions in response to its customers‘ needs and in favour of the circular economy. We are proud that Rubicon Global has become one of our expert partners. Together, we will add a new dimension to waste management both sides of the Atlantic, that is ever more digital and efficient, for a sustainable protection of resources,” declared Jean-Marc Boursier, SUEZ’s Group Senior Executive VP in charge of Recycling & Recovery in Europe.
“This is a new day for the global waste and recycling industry and an extraordinary opportunity to change the world,” said Nate Morris, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Rubicon Global.
“Waste is an issue that affects every single person living on the planet. Through technology and innovation, we can make it less expensive and more responsible, and this partnership with SUEZ will help us do just that. With the international reach, incredible longevity as a company, and commitment to innovation and a sustainable future, SUEZ is a perfect strategic partner for Rubicon and I am particularly happy to have Jean-Marc as a new board member of the Company,” said Morris.
