The Greening of Mexico City

Good things are happening in Mexico City. Just take a walk through the historic Zocolo, located in the colonial center of this huge and vibrant city. Trees are being planted along cobblestone streets. Buildings dating to the city's colonial past are finding new life as cafes and restaurants. Tourists from around the world marvel at ancient Aztec temples located just meters away from the imposing sixteenth century Spanish cathedral. The air is noticeably cleaner than before. Infrastructure projects in areas such as water and sewer are improving the quality of life - and helping protect the natural environment.

Owen George Global Strategies is proud to be a part of the positive news from Mexico. Our client Thermaco, Inc. provides technology and services to recycle water and protect the waste water infrastructure - helping build a better tomorrow.
