Xylem Watermark’s Emma Housman spoke with Vinesan Govender to learn about his work with Engineers Without Borders, and his experience working with a team of Xylem volunteers & engineers in Malawi to secure running water for rural health clinics.
The commitment of volunteer hours doubled from 2020 to 2021, despite the challenges of COVID-19. Xylem employees stepped up both in person, in their own communities, and virtually, finding new ways to make a difference.
Projects include exploring solutions to urban flooding and water pollution in New York City; improving water access in underserved communities in Cape Town and Mumbai; and advancing water sustainability education in Shanghai.
Water utilities could cut their emissions dramatically and quickly, according to a new paper from Xylem. The paper outlines the sector’s opportunity to reduce emissions quickly and affordably, with current, high-efficiency technologies.
Xylem’s recently launched Xylem Innovation Labs will work across Imagine H2O’s programs to support entrepreneurs pioneering sustainable solutions to the water challenges facing communities and businesses.
Every year, millions of people are displaced as a result of violent conflict, political upheaval and extreme weather patterns. Amid these challenges, Mercy Corps brings emergency, life-changing relief to those who need it most.
