Under the two-year agreement, the utilities plan to share successful experiences providing water and sanitation services, focusing on areas such as corporate social responsibility, corporate government, business consulting and wastewater treatment systems, among others.
In the next few days, executives from the two firms will begin forming working groups and defining projects of common interest in the potable water and sanitation sectors, according to an EPM release.
Emaap-Q provides water and sanitation services to 2.2mn residents throughout 65 districts of Quito.
EPM is Colombia's largest public services business group. It operates 3,580km of potable water network, serving 10 municipalities in the Aburrá valley.
