Comprehensive water management

There is a global consensus on the narrow link between water, energy and food; therefore, it is necessary to have a comprehensive treatment of water resources to improve the efficiency of their use, mitigate and control shortage risks, create synergy between users and projects, and to have governance that is coordinated across all sectors. In fact, 13 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are related to coordinating these elements.

Another important aspect is the dependence of the economic activities of a finite and vulnerable resource, threatened because of the pressure on its use, contamination, shortage, variability and climate change.

The solution to this problem requires strengthening management of water at the national level in order to improve its administration, conservation and care. 99.4% of the energy produced in 2017 used hydroelectricity, and we promoted it with a sustainable and clean source that contributes to integral development in the regions where we operate.

“We have the idea that natural resources are unlimited, and there seems to be great competition for water, not only in terms of quantity but of quality, which becomes a major challenge for our survival as human beings, and for the viability of the energy generation business, whose backbone happens to be hydroelectric power. For that reason, we work with our stakeholders to ensure that water is properly managed and protected, as it is key in preserving life and contributing to territorial wellbeing and the country's progress.”
