To drive awareness on these themes, we asked leading voices in the global water for industry ecosystem to share insights, vision and future-forward methodologies.

Selected highlights

“Industry must see improving sustainable water use as an opportunity that goes beyond compliance. Better water management and stewardship will result in lower operational risks, attract investment and promote competitiveness.” Lennart Silvis, Global Director Water for Industry Royal HaskoningDHV in Letting the water in: integrating water into decision making.
“There should be a horizontal integration through the digitisation of data from all the different players in the water network to promote efficient water administration.
