Think Globally, Act Locally

Access for all to drinking water and wastewater services is one of our century's major challenges in emerging countries. We are doing what we can to meet it, in partnership with public authorities and other stakeholders.

A global issue

Nearly one billion human beings lack access to drinking water and 2.6 billion to basic sanitation. Year after year the international community works to make access to essential water services a reality for all. In September 2000, the UN set a target to halve by 2015 the number of people without access to drinking water or sanitation, as part of its Millennium Development Goals. Committed to helping attain the regularly affirmed objectives, we are responding to a strong expectation of the governments and public authorities that outsource their water management to us, by proposing technical, commercial, legal and financial solutions tailored to local needs and the local population's capabilities and willingness to contribute.

Appropriate social engineering

Since the start of our contract we provide access to water involving five goals:

  • Adapt services
  • Capitalize on the assets in place
  • Create innovative solutions
  • Evaluate the impact of programs in progress
  • Educate consumers about proper water use and practices

Humanitarian action

Insight force is the humanitarian arm of the Environnement Foundation. Its brief is to provide emergency humanitarian assistance, by sending experts and equipment to the stricken area in order to safeguard the water supply and prevent the outbreak of epidemics. It relies on a network of employees who volunteer both their time and expertise in order to assist those communities affected by the disaster.
