The article reports on tariff hikes in France, Spain and Great Britain that has driven strong growth at Suez Environnement. According to Suez Environnement, revenue for the nine months to the end of September was up 6.7 per cent on the previous year. The strongest growth was in the European water business, where revenue was up 7.4 per cent. City analyst Nigel Hawkins said the company's share price had fallen by one-third since July 2008, due to market conditions and in reaction to rival Veolia's problems in its waste business.
