World Water Day raises awareness about the importance and scarcity of this resource

At Mota-Engil ATIV, Water Efficiency is one of the pillars of Sustainability, daily reinforcing awareness and contributing with solutions, technologies, and practices to reduce water consumption in its operations and construction projects.

On March 22, 1992, the United Nations (UN) established World Water Day, a global initiative to highlight crucial issues related to water and raise awareness about the importance of this vital resource.

Currently, we face significant challenges regarding water availability and quality. Climate change, uncontrolled urbanization, pollution, and irresponsible use of water resources are threats that require immediate action. By adopting sustainable water management practices, we can ensure equitable access to this vital resource, promoting social justice and international cooperation.

Initiatives that promote water efficiency, water recycling, watershed protection, and the development of innovative technologies are fundamental steps to achieve the necessary balance.

At Mota-Engil ATIV, Water Efficiency is one of the pillars of Sustainability, daily reinforcing awareness and contributing with solutions, technologies, and practices to reduce water consumption in its operations and construction projects.

An example of these practices is the use of the innovative DRYJECT + SAP technology, which has been a very effective tool, proven by clients, in reducing the water footprint associated with the maintenance of various green spaces, with savings that can exceed 50%.

Water leak detection systems, proper operations of wastewater treatment plants, solutions for reusing wastewater produced in yards for irrigation and cleaning, rainwater harvesting, the installation of water-saving mechanisms in ATIV offices, and the promotion of consumption changes are also utilized.

Mota-Engil ATIV takes on the challenge of good water management and aims to contribute to SDG 6: ensuring availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.
