World Water Day – challenges and opportunities


We have celebrated the World Water Day together with several WIN companies at the IKEA head office in Malmö. IKEA is a forerunner in water sustainability – their goal is to be “water positive” in 2020 through Water Stewardship. We in WIN Water applaud the realization that good water handling benefits people, the environment and business, all at once.

As you know, the water market is filled with challenges and opportunities.
UNICEF reports that around 2.4 billion people do not have access to good sanitation and around 663 million lack good drinking water. According to the World Economic Forum, the global risks with highest concerns in the coming ten years are water crises, climate change, food crises and social instability – all of which are or can be directly related to water.

These global challenges are also opportunities. There is a huge global need for innovative water technology and services. Solutions to the challenges already exist to a large extent, but they often need assistance in reaching the market. This is where WIN comes in! WIN Water accelerates the market access of novel solutions for water and sanitation, stimulating not only sustainable products, but sustainable business as well.
