Today is World Water Day. This year the theme is “The world is thirsty because we are hungry” and the UN is attempting to drive home just how important water is for the food industry given that most of the water we “drink” actually reaches us through the food we eat.
According to a KPMG report “Expect the Unexpected”, water shortage will be a serious obstacle to growth and development in many companies between now and the year 2030.
While water coverage has increased by 87%, the world is still far from the sanitation target of 75%, according to the report “Keeping Track of Our Changing Environment”, drawn up by the UN Environment Programme.
ACCIONA has been working for more than 30 years to help make water shortage a thing of the past. At our Technology Center in Barcelona, we carry out ongoing research into water- and wastewater treatment and desalination. Because solutions don’t always rain down on us.
