Resource availability is a vital challenge. We must supply as many people as possible with high quality drinking water at a fair price, and optimise the collection, recycling and recovery of waste as a source of new resources.
By protecting natural resources now, we’re guaranteeing the quality of our environment and our resources in the future. As cities and industry become increasingly focused on reducing their environmental impact, we’re working with them to improve discharge quality, recover energy from sludge, reduce CO2 emissions, decontaminate soils and promote biodiversity.
Information technology is at the heart of our drive to improve resource efficiency. Real-time management of water and sanitation services, smart collection systems, reverse logistics, optimisation of energy consumption in factories – these solutions all generate significant economic and environmental savings for our customers.
The resource revolution is circular: transforming seawater into drinking water, sludge into renewable energy and waste into energy or secondary raw materials. By creating new, high-quality resources from waste, we protect our scarce natural resources.
