    Our operations in Ecuador have helped mitigate the adverse effects of climate change, implement environmental sustainability and improve access to healthcare and education for locals.

    In Ecuador, we have focused on:

    Climate action and energy

    Our support has enabled construction of sewer networks, wastewater treatment and stormwater systems in Ecuador’s coastal areas, thus reducing the plastic discharge in the Pacific Ocean and aligning with the Clean Oceans Initiative. This modernisation of water supply and sewerage systems has led to substantial energy savings, water loss reduction in networks and an improvement in wastewater treatment operations. This investment has also enhanced Ecuador’s pandemic resilience by

    • ensuring steady access to clean drinking water to all Ecuadoreans, especially the vulnerable and low-income groups.
    • reducing methane emissions generated by wastewater treatment plants.
    • connecting households to water and sanitation services.
    Sustainable transport

    We have supported the funding of Quito's inaugural metro line. The project has enhanced safe and efficient transportation for daily commuters and stimulated the city’s trade, tourism and overall economic vibrancy. Moreover, the new line has alleviated traffic congestion within Ecuador's capital and its surrounding areas, boosting public transport efficiency, curbing fuel usage and mitigating greenhouse gas emissions.


    We have supported Ecuador’s childhood vaccination campaign by funding vaccine purchases and bolstering cold chain and logistics for vaccine distribution to remote areas. Our support enhances Ecuador’s pandemic readiness, the long-term resilience of its healthcare system and the delivery of essential public health services. Additionally, it empowers gender equality by promoting equal vaccine access, particularly for girls and women.


    We have helped to establish and equip technical institutes to strengthen Ecuador's dual professional training system, aligning with its labour market needs. This has driven human capital development, boosting employability and economic prospects for young people, thereby contributing to Ecuador’s economic and social growth.
