Protecting water resources is one of VIVAQUA’s key commitments. Our company aims to reduce its ecological footprint by 15% by 2024.
Water is a basic necessity. VIVAQUA contributes in various ways to ensuring access to drinking water and sanitation services for its customers.
Water is a vital resource that should be accessible to all but which is unfortunately unevenly distributed throughout the world.
VIVAQUA encourages citizens to use tap water rationally.
