Increasing Access to Sustainable, Safe Water
In addition to efforts to help our world better manage water resources, Pentair is working to transform the way safe water is sustainably delivered to people in need. Through Project Safewater, the company’s holistic approach to providing safe water solutions, Pentair collaborates with a range of partners with innovative approaches—combining technology, micro-enterprise business models, and scientific research—to provide sustainable access to safe water.
Since 2007, Pentair has implemented numerous Project Safewater programs around the world, and today provides clean, safe drinking water every day to three million people in the developing world. Its initial Safewater initiative, launched in 2007 in Colon, Honduras, has enabled the community of 300,000 to sustainably operate more than 200 Safewater stations, reducing the incidence of water borne illness by 80 percent.
These projects help to improve our business models and technology frameworks. But most importantly, they save lives. Through these efforts, we create shared value – for society and for our business.
