Company description

Sarga (Sociedad Aragonesa de Gestión Agroambiental) is a regional trading company with fully public capital, subscribed in its entirety by the Government of Aragón through the Corporación Empresarial Pública de Aragón, the organisation’s sole shareholder.

It operates in the form of a single-person limited liability company and, fundamentally, through orders from the Department of Agriculture, Livestock and Environment of the Government of Aragon.

Its activity, focused on the agri-food and environmental fields, is limited to the Autonomous Community of Aragon and does not compete with private sector companies in any of its activities. Although its objectives do not include obtaining economic benefits, it does act under budgetary control and financial equilibrium guidelines.

Its vocation is to be an instrumental, helpful, efficient, modern company with transparent and responsible management. Therefore, as an own means of the Government of Aragon, it maintains a relationship with the latter based on the capacity for self-organisation of public administrations.

Among the agri-environmental services provided by Sarga are several related to water management and water resources. The Irrigation Office, for example, is responsible for the management, processing and dissemination of information from the network of automatic weather stations, as well as technical advice, training, dissemination and transfer of data to the irrigation sector and irrigation communities.

The company also prepares and drafts complete land consolidation and infrastructure projects for the modernisation and improvement of irrigation systems and prepares reports for the processing of authorisations and environmental management procedures in the Autonomous Community. At the same time, it carries out ecological management procedures for wastewater treatment plants.

These are services of a permanent and structural nature. Still, Sarga can carry out any others that may be entrusted to it by the Government of Aragon on an ad hoc basis, as happens both in the water sector and in other areas related to its competencies.

SARGA’s activities most closely linked to the action of ZINNAE are the following:

  • Irrigator’s office, advisory service on water and energy issues in irrigation, and dissemination of studies through periodical information.
  • Evaluation of agro-industrial products
  • Management of liquid manures
  • Drafting and managing water-related works, from irrigation modernisation to Wastewater Treatment Plan activities.
