Civitta helps to carry through an analysis for the Estonian Water Companies Association2016-06-08
Estonian Water Works Association (EVEL) has involved Civitta and Keskkonnalahendused Ltd. as partners for conducting a research with the goal of determining the most optimal and sustainable business model for the water industry. In addition, an action plan for the strategy implementation will be composed.
CEO of EVEL emphasized the importance of the analysis in a press release. "In Estonia we have about 200 different water supply and sewerage companies that all operate on a different basis. It is vital to stimulate their cooperation, however, today we are in a situation where we do not have the overall view of the sector that would help the state, local governments and water supply companies make these kind of strategic decisions." Therefore, as a result of the analysis a sustainable long-term water strategy for the whole sector will be developed.
According to Kristiina Oll, project manager of Civitta, the study is important as water companies affect us all directly through the price and quality of the water and sewer service. "With the survey Civitta helps to contribute to the sustainability of the activities of water supply companies. This will ensure long-term quality and affordability of drinking water."
The total cost of the project is 176 444 EUR and it is co-funded by the Estonian Environmental Investment Centre with a rate of 90%.
The deadline for the project final report is November 2017.
