World Water Day – doing our part for safe water
The 22nd of March is “World Water Day“. Designated by the United Nations, it is intended to bring attention to the global need for available and safe water. From the World Water Day web site:
“The Sustainable Development Goals, launched in 2015, include a target to ensure everyone has access to safe water by 2030, making water a key issue in the fight to eradicate extreme poverty.”
DNV GL is equally committed to doing its part to help provide clean water throughout the world. We have been a United Nations Global Compact member since 2003. With this organization we are working to turn the UN Sustainable Development Goals into local business initiatives. Among these critical goals are Clean Water and Sanitation. The crux of this goal is to “Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all”.
