The Ter-Llobregat Water Supply Body (ATL in its Catalan acronym) is a public company belonging to the Government of Catalonia, with reference to the drinking water supply, which supplies more than 100 municipalities, which would be equivalent to a population of 5 million inhabitants.
The ATL already had a sustainability plan, but it had to set priorities, identify new lines of action with key departments and, in short, make the circular economy a cross-cutting area within the organisation.
What was done?
Under this premise, external analysis was conducted to learn about the latest technologies and innovations applied in the water sector, the existing links between ATL’s sustainability plan and the concepts of the circular economy were detected and the key agents that make up the ecosystem were able to be identified, as well as incorporating environmental criteria into the process of designing products and services.

As a result of the analysis, ATL has not only transversely incorporated circular economics into its sustainability plan, but it has also jointly prioritised the possible circular lines of action in order to create a common language and shared vision for the entire company.
