Mission and approach
Vitens Evides International offers local water companies technical, operational and management support, both in the short term and longer term. The aim is to help water companies to become financially more healthy and to operate more efficiently with a minimum of water loss and non-revenues. In this way, we will be able to contribute to the improvement of drinking water supplies and sanitation in developing countries.
We pursue this by entering into multiple-year partnerships with local companies. Vitens Evides International helps local management by appointing a Resident Project Manager alongside the local manager and by deploying short term staff with specialist expertise on specific assignments. By offering tailor-made solutions to our partners, we are able to strive for the best strategy and way of working for each company.
Vitens Evides International is powered by the two largest water companies of the Netherlands, Vitens and Evides Water company. Together with our Dutch partner WML (Waterleiding Maatschappij Limburg) we serve some 8,9 million customers, i.e. 55% of the Netherlands’ population. Through Vitens Evides International, Vitens and Evides Water company jointly contribute to one of the Millennium Development Goals: improving the access to drinking water for the poorest.
