At World Water Week 2017 in Stockholm, Xylem (NYSE:XYL), a leading global water technology company, will lead and participate in forums focused on accelerating the smarter management of water and wastewater. Taking place from August 27- September 1, World Water Week will center on the theme of “Water and Waste: Reduce and Reuse” and be attended by more than 3,000 professionals from some 300 businesses, agencies and non-governmental organizations.
On Sunday, August 27, Xylem is co-convening a forum entitled “Data Drought: An Assessment of Global Hydrological Monitoring Systems ” along with Duke University, the Aspen Institute and the University of Oxford. This multi-stakeholder discussion will assess the severe decline in critical global water monitoring infrastructure, explore the challenges and solutions to up-scaling this infrastructure as well as the implications of non-action, and define next steps for collaboration. The session will be led by Albert Cho, Xylem’s Vice President of Strategy and Business Development, Alex Fischer of the Smith School of Enterprise and Environment at University of Oxford, and Martin Doyle of Duke University and the Aspen Institute.
Xylem will co-convene a second workshop on Tuesday, August 29 entitled “Powering the Wastewater Renaissance: Emissions Reduction in Wastewater Management ” with the European Water Association and IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute. Xylem’s recent research shows that smart technology investments in the wastewater sector can cut the global sector’s electricity-related greenhouse gas emissions by 50% and save nearly $40 billion. This event will foster a multi-stakeholder discussion to explore the opportunity, challenges and potential solutions to driving adoption of smart technologies in wastewater management. This session will be led by Xylem’s Randolf Webb and Aleksandra Lazic, Károly Kovács of the European Water Association and Christian Baresel of IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute.
On Monday, August 28, Xylem’s Mr. Cho will participate in the “21st Century Technology: Bridging the Gap to Wastewater Reuse” workshop.
