Water is one of the essential ingredients of life. It makes up more than half of our bodies, and covers two-thirds of the earth’s surface. But while most of us take its presence for granted, millions of people deal with water scarcity on a daily basis. And by 2030, that will be true for 40% of the world’s population. This World Water Day, we reflect on the global water crisis and focus on valuing water in all of its facets.
At Smartvatten, we think the world of water. Clean water ensures our wellbeing, enables food production, and creates innumerable possibilities for businesses in every society. That’s why we are committed to saving millions of liters of water every year. Together with our clients, we want to build a water-efficient future. A future where the value of clean water is appreciated and its responsible use is an ongoing, worldwide effort. A future where everyone does their part.
Fortunately, sustainability is increasingly becoming a high priority for governments and businesses. Ensuring the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all is now number 6 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. If you think about it, clean water is inextricably linked to each and every one of them. Our goal? To play our part by helping the real estate sector focus on sustainable solutions that not only reduce their costs, but help save our environment. Water is the future. It’s time to act. Together.
