  • "Whenever IBIO presents a partnership proposal for the development of a project, we do our best to support them. The Institute is a pioneer in implementing the concept of sustainable development, proposing solutions that are focused on economically viable results and which are consistently oriented environmentally and maintain clear social goals. The more we work with IBIO, the more we ourselves grow as a company."

  • “My expectations with the project are of continuous improvement. We’re learning so much and overjoyed that we can already see the results. There’s just no way to do this kind of work on your own. Partnerships like this allow us to go so far.”

  • “In addition to IBIO-AGB Doce, the water agency of Rio Doce, IBIO provides key technical support to the eleven committees responsible for this river basin. Our expectation is, with IBIO’s support, to increasingly expand this activity and our projects and raise more funds beyond the context of charging payment for the use of the water."
