Fixing And Managing The Water Supply Offers Opportunities For Businesses

March 22, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Nestlé Waters NA chief sustainability officer Nelson Switzer sees two major opportunities that businesses can take advantage of within the $600 billion water industry. First, companies can deploy data and technology to help monitor and deliver water as efficiently as possible. And, secondly, the “massive water infrastructure gap” in the U.S. and around the world needs to be closed. The leaks in the infrastructure are wasting water: anywhere from 18 percent to 40 percent, a range “within the norm for most municipalities in North America.” That presents opportunities for companies to investigate infrastructure leaks, investigate replacement needs, and develop solutions to replace, repair, or bypass the problems. Those solutions are well under way, Switzer says. Many technological start-ups are focused on the water business, and many are part of the Imagine H20 accelerator program.
