Here are the facts. The world is facing unprecedented water challenges brought on by population growth, urbanization and shrinking freshwater supplies. Millions of people lack access to clean drinking water.
As countries around the globe observe World Water Day, Sensus, a Xylem brand, is inviting customers, distributors and partners to join employees in support of Watermark, Xylem’s corporate citizenship and social investment program. One such opportunity will be for those who attend the 2019 Sensus Reach conference in Anaheim, California.
“Many of our utility customers are focused on ways to conserve water and energy so it makes sense to invite them to participate in a special Watermark service activity during our conference in November,” said Xylem Measurement & Control Solutions President Colin Sabol. “This invitation is one of many being made by our global Xylem colleagues as part of an effort to include our customers in an initiative that is at the core of our company values.”
The Xylem Watermark program aims to provide and protect safe water resources for communities in need and educate individuals about water issues such as sanitation and hygiene. Since 2008, Xylem Watermark has made significant investments through corporate grants, in-kind product donations, employee contributions and corporate matching. Watermark events are conducted year-round and vary from shoreline cleanup to water quality testing to raising awareness about global water issues.
This month Sensus employees worldwide are taking part in the Xylem Watermark Make Your Mark Challenge. The program ties to World Water Day and Earth Day and encourages employees to find ways individually and collectively to get involved in volunteer efforts.
