To advance sustainability, we have to be a company with a strong foundation that executes with discipline today, while also focusing on the future.
Clean water is essential for life. Yet it is estimated that three in 10 people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water, and six in 10 lack access to safely managed sanitation services. Major challenges such as water scarcity, the resilience of communities in the face of climate change and water affordability put our health and safety, our economy and environment – and our very future – at risk.
At Xylem, we solve water by delivering deep expertise, trusted technologies and innovative digital solutions to help water and resource providers keep essential services flowing in their communities, and to support industrials and other sectors to become more efficient.
We are a leading global water technology company with 2019 revenues of $5.2 billion. We design, manufacture and service highly engineered products and solutions across a variety of critical applications. While Xylem primarily serves the water sector, we also support gas and electric providers. Our broad portfolio of products, services and solutions enables our customers to address their toughest water and smart infrastructure challenges.
Water Scarcity – Millions of people around the world lack access to water. We transport, treat and test water to help make it safe and readily available to communities. We enable water reuse to create sustainable water sources for areas facing water scarcity.
Resilience to Water Challenges – Communities worldwide are experiencing increasing water-related emergencies including natural disasters. We help communities prepare, mitigate and recover from severe weather events, protecting local economies and ecosystems from flooding and sewer overflow pollution – and protecting lives.
Water Affordability – Delivering water is not always an efficient process and there can be a lot of water lost along the way. We help prevent lost water due to leaking infrastructure, faulty meters and unauthorized use. We provide innovative solutions that create water, energy and cost savings.
