About

Join us on January 12th and take part in a discussion on how industry can mitigate and overcome the challenges of water in a sustainable and efficient way.

Water is an essential resource for our society, nations and the industries supporting the growth we aim for. While water scarcity is discussed as global resource challenge, it is today also becoming a European issue with water scarcity and droughts emerging across Europe and in some areas have become the new normal. The water scarcity issue poses threats to our people, nature and not least our economy as it a vital input to our production of food, building material and industries.

A call to action

According to Eurostat, the industry today represents approx. 40% of the total water consumption in Europe Therefore, when meeting the demands of our European societies in the future, water resources in industries need to be utilised in a more efficient and sustainable way. Not only to meet the demands but also to minimise the rising risks of water shortage as input for producing goods and infrastructure.

The technical potential to save water in industrial processes is massive, but today not fully utilised. To capture the untapped potential of water efficiency in industries, ambitious regulatory frameworks and goals need to be addressed by the EU.

Sharing lessons learnt

The good news is that we already today have implementable solutions and best-case examples of how to create water and resource-efficient industries. In Denmark, companies like Grundfos, AVK, Rambøll, NIRAS, Carlsberg Group and FLSmidth have all shown how solutions in the value chain such as metering, pumps, valves and temperature control can all contribute to produce the necessary goods for society in a sustainable way.

Through public and private leadership, a combination of political ambitions and innovative water solutions, we can properly address the water challenges of Europe.
