Mission, vision, values

The 2019-2024 strategic plan VIVAnext reflects VIVAQUA’s ambitions, plans and commitments until 2024.

It is based on our company’s mission, vision and values in order to define six strategic objectives for the medium term.


Our mission

Our company has made it its mission to ensure sustainable and constant access to high-quality water for all, to collect waste water and to control flooding.

Our vision

To exemplify together with pride a modernised public service, actively open to the world and resolutely facing the future, focused on the needs of our customers and society, and committed to preserving the environment.

Our values

A sense of service, integrity, team spirit, reliability, competence and openness are the six values practised daily by all VIVAQUA employees.

130 years of history

VIVAQUA was founded on 12 December 1891 under the name Compagnie Intercommunale des Eaux de l’Agglomération bruxelloise (CIE).

The purpose of the CIE was to supply certain municipalities in Brussels with high-quality drinking water. Over the course of its history, it has expanded its missions and areas of activity.
