Celebrating World Water Day with BIER at the White House
This week we celebrate World Water Day, when we pause to recognize the necessity of protecting and preserving one of our most important natural resources. Water scarcity, resiliency, and stakeholder engagement are just a few of the challenges, and opportunities, where business, governments, not for profits and communities need to work together to ensure effective water stewardship and to improve quality of life in the face of natural disasters, pollution, and increasing demands on water sources.
It was appropriate, then, that the White House chose this week to host its first ever Water Summit to promote the importance of water stewardship in the US, and to highlight new commitments and announcements that the Administration and other organizations have made regarding water stewardship.
The Beverage Industry Environmental Roundtable (BIER)--a technical coalition of leading beverage brands, facilitated by Antea Group--is honored to be included as the initiator of two of these commitments.
