Corsan is a mixed capital company controlled by the State of Rio Grande do Sul, which owns 99.99% of its shares. The company is headquartered in Porto Alegre and serves a total of 317 municipalities with water and waste water services. This broad coverage means Corsan is the largest player in the region, reaching over 6.3 million people.
The company was founded in December 21st 1965 with the primary goal of bringing drinking water to the population of Rio Grande do Sul. Over a half century later, this objective has come true. As of today, approximately 97% of the population in Corsan-served municipalities is connected to the company’s drinking water network.
The challenge now lies in the universalization of waste water collection and treatment, a service which is currently available to approximately 20% of Corsan’s clients. This mismatch between water and waste water utilities reflects a belated understanding of waste water treatment as an essential step for the preservation of water sources as well as for the health of the population.
Maintaining credibility in water supply and achieving universal access to sanitary sewage – these have been the main goals that guide our investments and the mobilization of our human, technological and financial capital.
To provide top-notch basic sanitation services in the segments and in the area in which it operates, fulfilling its social, environmental and economic role, creating value for its stakeholders.
