The group’s organization is based on business units and operational functions. Each business unit and operational function manager will be responsible for submitting an organizational structure best suited to achieving their objectives.

A selection and appointment process has been set up by the two groups to ensure that the essential criterion used in this process is, above all, that of the professional competence of the candidates while respecting a broad balance in the choice between Suez and Gaz de France (GDF) employees and proceeding with transparency.

At the end of this process, the 158 managers reporting directly to the directors of the five energy business units and the 14 operational functions were appointed. These managers include 75 employees from entities belonging to Gaz de France and 83 employees from entities belonging to Suez. For certain departments, the employees reporting to the respective departmental heads in the organization chart have also been appointed.
