Act today to ensure the long-term durability of our economic, social and environmental capital.
The principle of sustainability has become inextricably tied to the future of the global economy, our life as a community and the governance of corporations, including Ovivo. Sustainability is our commitment, as an organization, to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
For most corporations that have integrated the precepts of sustainable development into their day-to-day management and the life of their organization, this commitment is reflected primarily in initiatives aimed at minimizing their environmental footprint, notably by reducing their energy and water consumption, limiting their greenhouse gas emissions and eliminating all forms of waste.
Not only is Ovivo striving for these objectives, but the notion of sustainability is an integral part of our mission and vision. Moreover, sustainability is at the core of our business: the development and implementation of technologies aimed at treating water for its re-use and conservation.
Sustainability in Technology
Responsible management of global water reserves is one of the greatest and more urgent challenges faced by mankind today. At Ovivo, we fully understand this issue which we have been addressing for years, as we have built a portfolio featuring some of the most comprehensive and top-performing solutions worldwide for the treatment and recycling of municipal and industrial wastewater.
We continuously enhance our product selection by integrating ever-more efficient, economical and eco-friendly technologies, designed to meet current, emerging and future needs in the area of water conservation and reuse.
For example, Ovivo is one of the foremost providers of submerged membrane bioreactors, a municipal and industrial water recycling technology with a small environmental footprint, due to the modest size and energy-efficiency of the required facilities. Its municipal sludge mixing process can use up to 80% less power than conventional processes.
Ovivo is also a world leader in water intake screening solutions, which incorporate a state-of-the-art technology designed to protect marine life. Its ultra-purification technologies can yield treated water with one the highest degrees of purity in the industry.
Protecting the environment
Ovivo has for several years now integrated the principles of sustainable development into the procedures and controls governing the management of its operations and assets worldwide. Each operating unit around the world must notably produce periodic certifications in the area of environmental protection, which is subject to the company’s highest authority: the Board of Directors.
Through its global sales and engineering organization, initiatives are taken every day by employees in a spirit of sustainable development, such as responsible and sensible consumption of drinking water and energy, recovery and recycling, and lesser use of paper; all of this Ovivo fosters, among other things, by implementing electronic portals for the benefit of employees and directors to lessen travel through the use of videoconferencing.
