Suez Environnement opens new North American headquarters in NJ
SUEZ Environnement North America recently announced that it has opened a new "green" corporate office in the borough of Paramus, N.J.
PARAMUS, NJ, June 15, 2015 -- SUEZ Environnement North America, the parent company of United Water and the North American subsidiary of the second largest environmental services company in the world, recently announced that it has opened a new corporate office in the borough of Paramus, N.J. The company's new office building is designed to attain a certification in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) from the U.S. Green Building Council.
The green building will be occupied by 320 employees providing corporate, technical and managerial services to SUEZ's business units, which provide water and waste management solutions for municipalities and industries in the entire water cycle and the circular economy. The move will bring employees currently working in various locations throughout the region into a single workspace designed for collaboration.
In 2014, the New Jersey Economic Development Authority approved a $5.5-million state tax break to keep the company and its jobs in New Jersey. The open-building layout in Paramus will house all current employees, 15 new positions and dozens of workstations to accommodate regular-visiting employees from operations across the country and the world.
In order to receive LEED certification, building projects must satisfy prerequisites as well as earn points to achieve different levels of certification. Additionally, SUEZ Environnement will share data on the building's energy and water use to attain this coveted environmental status.
