ECOGESTUS has an integrated vision of the urban environment. We work for the benefit of sustainability, as a measure of the community’s quality of life, now and in the future.

We diagnose the problems and challenges, measure the efficiency of the use of space, establishing indicators.
After the initial phase, we move on to action proposals, analyzing the best solutions and developing sustainability guides.

At the end of ECOGESTUS action, success is measured by improving the well-being and quality of life of citizens.

ECOGESTUS Lda. Presents multidisciplinary teams in the work it does, using people with experience.

The training of professionals accompanying ECOGESTUS Lda covers the following core areas:

– Environmental Engineering – Sanitary Branch
– Mechanical Engineering – Logistics, vehicles and machines; recycling process
– Industrial Ecology – life cycle analysis
– Biology – composting and waste treatment
– Economy – cost-benefit analysis and economic feasibility and tariff studies
– Sociology – study of habits, demographic development, human resources frameworks and work models

The fieldwork carried out since 2005 allows us to ensure that the teams specifically formed for each project have a thorough knowledge of the context. The solutions indicated are reviewed from various points of view, namely at the technical, economic, social and environmental level.

In this sense, it is evident that the solutions proposed by ECOGESTUS will benefit the Management of Resources, encourage the integration of communities, the creation of jobs and the generation of income at the local level.
