Addressing the Sanitation Problem in Brazil

It was recently reported that Mr. Edison Carlos, President of Trata Brasil, addressed a proposed initiative that will formulate a new plan for sanitation across the country. Today, sanitation is currently controlled by the government, where they supply about 90 percent of residents and businesses, with about 70 percent of that being run by the state. The government of Brazil has announced that in an effort to address issues with sanitation around the country, they have partnered with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development. Mr. Carlos believes that the services implemented in the initiative will help to provide improvements that will affect resource and structural areas, as well as the way management, is handled.

According to Mr. Carlos, in the past, the Brazilian government has worked well when partnered with outside entities. If the partnership between the National Bank for Economic and Social Development, we could see more partnerships between the Brazilian government and other private corporations to handles major issues that are like the sanitation problem. In the initiative, it has been revealed that the government intends on creating unique plans for each state that will help to address the individual needs associated with the citizens in each area. The problem with water loss in Brazil, combined with the limited resources of the government, has been cited as the reason for the major push to utilize outside resources for the greater good of the community. Mr. Felipe Montoro Jens also weighed in on the initiative, discussing a decrease in the waste produced in each community. The Chief Executive Officer of Energizer Captacao S.A., Mr. Felipe Montoro Jens has been an innovator in the financial investment field for a number of years, seeing his first major executive position in 2010 as the Director at Braskem S.A.
