Seeking Water Champions

At The Water Council, we love to convene, connect and showcase our members. But this can leave out companies that aren’t part of the water technology sector but still want to support our mission of driving freshwater innovation and advancing water stewardship. That’s where our new Water Champion initiative comes in.

The Existential Challenge of Our Lifetime

As I write this, we are expecting another day of severe storms and extreme heat in Milwaukee. Is this caused by climate change? It’s hard to say for certain, but we know climate change is here and will get worse, as confirmed by the recent United Nations report. While the news about climate change is alarming, we at The Water Council see a huge opportunity to leverage our work in water innovation, technology and stewardship to make a real impact in the sustainability movement.

Xylem has been a member of The Water Council for nearly a decade. Our partnership took a giant step forward when Xylem announced it would move its Sanitaire operations to the Global Water Center. Now Xylem is again strengthening its relationship to The Water Council as the newest sponsor of our Tech Challenge.

Climate Change, ESG & Infrastructure, Oh My!

The weather is heating up, and so is the debate in Washington, D.C., over President Joe Biden’s infrastructure plan. Infrastructure, climate change and ESG (environmental, social and governance reporting) all intersect with the issue of water. That’s why you need to attend our virtual Water Leaders Summit, presented by Baird and A. O. Smith, which will discuss all those topics over the course of six mornings July 20-22 and 27-29. Learn about our event and more in our June update.

For many firms, expanding into the US is attractive in theory, but daunting in practice. It’s even more challenging given current travel restrictions. Realizing the value of convening groups to share insights and ideas, The Water Council recently launched a new initiative to make it easier for European firms to connect with other water professionals in our ecosystem and with each other.
