A company that wants to transform brazilian sanitation

Iguá was born in 2017 with the commitment to be the best sanitation company to Brazil. Since then, we have been present in 39 municipalities with the sole objective of bringing sanitation to the populations served and helping the country to achieve universal water and sewage treatment services.

With 15 concessions and three public-private partnerships (PPPs), we are part of the lives of more than 7 million people who make up communities of all sizes. This condition gives us knowledge about the different realities of sanitation in the country and empowers us to overcome the most diverse technical and operational challenges.

For us, working in water and sewage treatment is more than a business activity. It is a large-scale commitment: with life, people, the environment, partners and sustainable development in Brazil.

In order to fulfill it, we have developed an organizational culture that inspires innovation, sustainability and customer focus. Learn more about DNA Iguá, here.



In 2013, the federal government launched the National Basic Sanitation Plan (Plansab) and, thus, defined the path for the country to pursue the universalization of water supply, sanitary sewage and waste and rainwater management services, within 20 years old.

Plansab foresees an investment of R$508.5 billion until 2033, investing R$304 billion, over two decades, in the universalization of water and sewage services.

Sanitation presents itself as one of the most important challenges of the national infrastructure. According to the Brazilian Association of Private Concessionaires of Public Water and Sewage Services (Abcon), 55% of the total of 5,570 municipalities may have a deficient water supply as of 2015. With regard to sanitary sewage, there are 85 million inhabitants without adequate collection service, while 118 million do not have their domestic sewage properly treated.

By relying on the role of the private sector for the universalization of services in the country, IGUÁ sees itself as a protagonist in the development of the sector.
