Our Commitment to Environmental Excellence



Sustainable development means finding ways to conserve natural resources so that we have them not just today, but tomorrow. As our water resources become more stressed and precious, it’s important to establish long-term solutions to address our water needs. That’s why at United Water we have adopted a sustainable development plan based on four priorities and 12 commitments. Our efforts started in 2005 and since then have been an integral part of our business strategy. Here is a snapshot of our priorities:

Four Priorities:
1. Conserve resources and engage in a circular economy
2. Innovate to respond to environmental challenges
3. Empower our employees as actors of sustainable development
4. Build our development goals with all stakeholders
