Industry

In industrialized nations, industries consume more than half of the water available for human use.

Water is critical for industries, both as a product and as an important component of many  supply chains, demanding huge quantities of fresh water and producing large volumes of wastewater and pollution. Corporations are increasingly aware of the business risk that water brings and their environmental impact, making water a critical part of their strategy and operations.
