Mergers: Commission approves the acquisition of Suez by Veolia, subject to conditions* The European Commission has approved, under the EU Merger Regulation, the proposed acquisition of Suez by Veolia. The approval is conditional on full compliance with a commitments package offered by Veolia. Executive Vice-President Margrethe Vestager, in charge of competition policy, said: "Thanks to the very comprehensive commitments put forward by Veolia, the Commission has been able to approve the concentration of Veolia and Suez, two French incumbents in the water and waste sectors. By this decision, the Commission ensures that this transaction will not adversely affect competition in the water and waste markets, two sectors that are key to the European Green Deal and the circular economy."
