Water is the essence of life; very few organisms can survive without it.
The blue planet as seen from space, is blue because 75% of the area of the planet is covered by water. This equates to 97% of all water found in earth being found in oceans and seas.
Of the remaining 3% of water, about 75% of this is found in the polar regions.. meaning for drinking purposes, we only have access to less than 1% of all water found on the planet.
These facts are key drivers behind the design of our projects – how do we minimise freshwater need, or can we assist in securing more water for the local community.
