We are a B certified, triple impact corporation, expert in solutions based on the nature and projects on water access. We work together with organizations to develop sustainability strategies, co-creating an economically sustainable model.
We develop, manage and implement water access, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) projects, as well as projects con conservation and protection of water through nature-based solutions that generate a positive impact in the business, the efficiency of the resource and communities.
Proyecto Agua Segura has a B2B business model or, as new trends show, A4A (Actor for Actor). We develop and manage comprehensively (end-to-end) water sustainable projects for companies. These projects respond to objectives and strategies of the companies, but also to the problems of the area where it will be developed.
In all of the projects we seek to partner and work together with local actors (communities, social organizations, ONG´s, environmental organizations, local governments, etc.) to achieve sustainability and the scalability of the project, generate local employment and bolster projects that are already working.
At Proyecto Agua Segura we perform surveys of all the area in question, detecting the places where the access to the right is infringed, or where there are environmental problems. Being at the site allows you to identify leaders and work together through a community approach. In this way, we seek to generate transformations on each space on new habits that last and multiply over time.
We have the capacity to work anywhere in the world, thanks to our strategy of generating alliances. We develop, manage and implement projects in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay, Brazil, Perú, México, Spain and Colombia.
WASH projects promote access to safe water, basic sanitation facilities, promotion of changes of behavior in hygiene and the empowerment of communities and local governments.
The focus of these projects lie on forming fertile soil that help improve the infiltration of water and thus avoid superficial erosion and draining, collecting water that recharges aquifers. This does not only help improve the quality and quantity of water, but also the health of the soil and the biodiversity.
We also work to generate native plants through the creation or improvement of plant nurseries and through forestation.
Together with these practices, we organize panels and discussion boards with different actors, as well as training workshops for local producers.
These projects promote improvements in the use of water for irrigation in productive areas to guarantee the efficiency in the application of water and its uniformity, in order to use the nutrients contained to the maximum level possible and reduce its environmental impact.
We also collect rainwater from nature to then irrigate, clean or consume prior treatment. Rainwater collection is an alternative to obtain a new source of water coming from the nature’s water cycle.
These are projects for the sustainable management, use, protection and conservation of resources of superficial water on watersheds. The protection and restoration of wetlands for the improvement in the collection, storage and regulation of water; the water traps for the creation of water retention infrastructure to avoid draining that can provoke environmental and social disasters; and the protection of water sources to generate a new access point to water.
With a territorial and innovative vision, we organize corporate volunteering programs for company collaborators to get involved. We organize territorial technical/social teams for the implementation of the program and working together with beneficiary organizations (community centers/schools/natural reserves/etc). All of the projects can include the volunteering program, adapting the activities to each company.
The water footprint is an environmental indicator that defines the total volume of sweet water used to produce goods and services normally consumed. It is a necessary variable that allows us to see how much water it costs to produce something.
Companies should develop strategies that include the management and control of the water footprint, assessing the level of appropriation and impact on the water resources required to produce a good or the provision of a service, over their complete lifecycle. The implantation of these protocols of environmental acting, show a high degree of commitment by the companies towards their environment, as they try to provide a solution to the problems related to water consumption, its quality and availability.
