Xylem has announced that its partnership with Planet Water Foundation has provided more than one million people with access to safe drinking water.
The milestone was achieved through 10 years of partnership centered on a shared mission to give access to clean water.
The global water technology company has sponsored the deployment of over 500 clean water projects in 14 countries across Asia Pacific and Latin America.
Most recently, Xylem supported natural disaster responses in the Philippines and in Honduras following hurricanes Eta and Iota.
Austin Alexander, vice president, sustainability and social Impact at Xylem, said: “Our partnership with Planet Water allows us to support communities that are in critical need of clean water.
“The fact that, together, we have now improved water access for one million people demonstrates the impact we can have when we partner together to solve the world’s water challenges.
“We have a unique opportunity to empower communities to achieve water security by providing innovative solutions, and we look forward to advancing this even further as we continue our partnership.”
Planet Water’s work centers on bringing clean water to the world’s most impoverished communities through the installation of community-based water filtration systems and by implementing water health and hygiene education programs, with a specific focus on schools, children, rural areas, and disaster response.
