Race to Zero

There is huge potential to cut water utilities' GHG emissions in half — quickly and at low to no cost — using existing, high-efficiency technologies.

Water utilities are on the frontlines of building a resilient future. Centralized wastewater infrastructure provides sanitation to more than 75% of the population across the US and Europe. The world’s 50 largest utilities supply drinking water for more than 1 billion people.

But today’s water systems are also major sources of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. If water utilities can meaningfully reduce their GHG emissions, they have a unique opportunity to contribute to the containment of climate change.

The good news? Existing tech can cut emissions at low or no cost

Existing, high-efficiency technologies can dramatically reduce energy- and process-related emissions. Water operators can deliver big results quickly, affordably, and at minimal risk.
