GDF SUEZ seeks clean energy answers

"BETTER City, Better Life" is the passionate theme of the World Expo 2010 Shanghai.

I am delighted with this partnership between GDF SUEZ and the France Pavilion for the Shanghai World Expo, an exceptional occasion to showcase the economic vitality of China and place Shanghai at the forefront of the international scene.

The 2010 event will be the largest-ever exposition since the first World Expo in Paris in 1855. It is also the first Expo to be held in a developing country that is undergoing rapid economic growth.

It will be a good opportunity for the host city to deepen its economic transformation and have an overwhelming change in its infrastructure and economy.

It is a great pleasure that GDF SUEZ has taken part in the transformation. The company provides the cutting-edge technology for the innovation of the Nanshi Water Plant, which will supply water for the Expo site and surrounding areas.

The Expo will also be a platform for people around world to exhibit, communicate and think.

At the beginning of the 21st century, one out of two people worldwide lives in a city or town. In 2020, the number of cities with a population of over 10 million is expected to reach 19. Twelve among them will be in Asia. The trend brings a great challenge to the world and Asian countries.

By helping to prevent global warming, preserving fossil fuels and natural resources and promoting environmentally friendly energy, GDF SUEZ is working to control the impact of its own activities and those of its customers on the environment.

Controlling emissions of greenhouse gases is a major challenge in sustainable development. GDF SUEZ emphasizes an industrial strategy based on low carbon emissions such as nuclear energy, combined-cycle gas turbines, and, of course, renewable energies.

This skill-based sponsorship at the Shanghai World Expo also represents an occasion for our teams to demonstrate their professionalism and expertise.

The main theme of World Expo 2010, "Better City, Better Life," is at the heart of GDF SUEZ's energy and environment challenges and businesses.
