The company has a team working to analyze opportunities abroad, but its main strategy in the sanitation sector is to grow nationally by participating in concessions throughout Brazil, according to Gomes.

Solví is a holding of various companies working in the solid waste management, basic sanitation, energy, and civil engineering sectors. It operates in 85 municipalities throughout Brazil and five in Peru.

The firm owns Brazilian water utility Águas do Amazonas, which serves Amazonas state capital Manaus.
