ECODIT embraces a corporate philosophy of hiring the best people, rewarding creativity and entrepreneurship, creating a productive and enjoyable work environment, maintaining the highest standards of integrity and quality, and always focusing on our core mission.
We believe that technologies and policies can produce durable positive impacts only if the institutions responsible for them share common vision and values, empower their people to think and act creatively, and reward them appropriately. To achieve enduring results, we bring together people with local know-how, innovative ideas, and proven talents, and we work side-by-side with them to design, develop and implement programs that are adapted to their situation and needs. Our clients have cited our community-centered approach as a key ingredient to our success in creating lasting impact.
ECODIT provides the full range of professional services in our sectors of expertise, from environmental assessments and feasibility studies, to communication and outreach, policy and regulatory support, institutional strengthening and capacity building, and design and construction management. We offer creative and adapted approaches that build on a solid understanding of the technical/engineering as well as the policy/institutional underpinnings of development challenges faced by societies in different parts of the world.
