Due to the increasing focus on corporate responsibility and the increasingly clear relationship between effective ESG (environmental, social and governance) management and company performance, water is a strategic topic that needs to be addressed.
If it is not your core business, dedicating time and resources to it is not easy.
We offer an innovative procurement model, where your water assets are outsourced in a dedicated company (Assetco), which will manage your water strategy to meet your requirements and goals.
This model applies to new or existing water infrastructure assets.
Focus on your core activities, while we take care of your water.
We design the project with your team according to your needs and constraints.
We assemble teams comprising infrastructure funds, water agencies, EPC contractors, plant operators and other key specialities.
We negotiate optimized partner agreements to meet your requirements and define a detailed project development roadmap.
A dedicated company is created, the AssetCo. As long-term partners, we take part of the project equity and provide our expertize throughout the project life.
Use the services without the hassle of managing the infrastructure.
You don’t need to invest in new assets or needed upgrades anymore. Our financial partners will do it for you.
You can also choose to sell existing assets to the Assetco.
…which means more capital to use for your core activities.
Transfer the risks of project management, delay, and operational performance to the Assetco.
External management of the infrastructure by a specialized group provides a higher level of commitment to efficiency, to help ensure compliance and help maintain regulatory and social license to operate.
The AssetCo can be designed to serve other water needs, like providing irrigation water to local communities or merchant services to other industries, minimizing overall local impacts. Multi-purposed infrastructure also opens the possibility to deconsolidate the assets from your balance sheet, improving your overall financial profile.
Given the immense need for infrastructure, like water and effluent treatment in emerging economies, helping the private sector contribute to the financing of projects is a vital necessity.
