The Environment division ecointegral works from the conception that profit defining any commercial entity must be compatible with social commitment and respect for nature. In short, conceive sustainable development, that is, meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs (Brundtland Report. UN, 1987)


With the aim of promoting sustainable development engineers ecointegral work and study environmental issues in an integrated manner, taking into account ecological, social, economic and technological dimensions. With this vision it works in 3 areas: Environmental Studies and Projects, Research and Management of CO2 and Water Engineering, with a wide experience accredited by numerous projects undertaken.
