Energy and water are essential for economic development, food production and global security. According to the UN, the world will need at least 30% more water, 45% more energy and 50% more food by 2030. Business has a vested interest and vital role to play in successfully addressing these challenges to ensure a more secure and prosperous energy and water future.

The good news is many forward-thinking companies are leading the way in solving energy and water challenges through greater efficiencies and conservation, new tools, technologies, innovation and strategic partnerships. As a result, businesses not only help achieve energy and water security, they can also reduce risk, improve productivity, realize cost savings, meet shareholder expectations, enhance brand and reputation and become more resilient to changing environments.

In this one-hour webcast, you’ll hear from three leading companies that are solving energy and water challenges through innovation and partnerships. You’ll learn about the types of replicable and scalable approaches they’ve used that yield business and environmental benefits, and the pitfalls to avoid when employing them.
