Aqualia is a benchmark in the sector and stands at the vanguard as a specialised, transparent and innovative entity. We've reached this position thanks to the commitment and extensive experience of our team of professionals who are constantly striving to improve efficiency in production processes and optimise resources, while placing citizens clearly at the core of our actions and policies.
This work approach and the continuous progress in innovation and in the use of new technologies have enabled us to bolster the company's leadership in the Spanish market and make headway in this regard in international markets, based on an ambitious but moderate strategy defined to consolidate the company's international presence. Sustainable development has a distinctively intrinsic role in Aqualia's business model: combining the generation of social benefits with a fair profit yield from activities puts the company in a privileged situation in the water management sector.
Aqualia's commitment and responsibility vis-à-vis the municipalities where it carries out its activities go beyond merely rendering a service: it has always sought to contribute to improving the well-being of people, particularly the most vulnerable groups.
