The partnership was announced today during the National Ground Water Association’s (NGWA) 2019 Groundwater Week.
To commemorate Xylem’s anniversary in October, employees and stakeholders around the world came together to provide and protect safe water resources for communities in need and to educate people about water issues during the annual Global Month of Service. This year, 3,913 volunteers logged 12,862 hours to a variety of projects, including cleanups, educational events, and several fundraisers and stakeholder events, including:
RYE BROOK, NY, November 15, 2019 /3BL Media/ - Xylem Inc. (NYSE: XYL), a leading global water technology company dedicated to solving the world’s most challenging water issues, is partnering with the Cityzens Giving annual charitable campaign launched today, a Manchester City Football Club global community initiative, which helps young leaders around the world change lives through the power of football.
Powerful things can happen when the water well industry works together, and this was apparent when the Water Well Trust (WWT) partnered with industry organizations to bring safe water supplies to rural Americans in need.
In the past three years, the WWT has worked with three charitable organizations—Culligan Cares, Pentair Foundation and Xylem Watermark—to rehabilitate old wells and drill new wells for families in New York, Louisiana, Georgia, Montana, Arkansas, North Carolina and Texas.
Nine million people in Mexico do not have access to potable water and another 10.2 million people lack basic sanitation infrastructure in their homes. Access to clean water affects children the most, with many missing school due to water-related illnesses. Through Xylem Watermark’s partnership with Planet Water and the Flex Foundation, 10 primary schools in Aguascalientes, Mexico recently received clean water access through community-based water filtration systems and hygiene education programs.
Through Xylem Watermark, our team in the UK attended a STEM Careers fair at Sandhurst Military Academy, where Xylem Watermark engaged with the Academy in water monitoring education programming through Earth Echo, one of our non-profit partners, while leading an interactive workshop on water pumping and digital solutions. Xylem employees have been proud to carry out our mission by focusing on water education, aligning with our 2025 sustainability goal to provide 15 million people with water education to improve quality of life and raise awareness by 2025.
How does diversity and inclusion help us solve water challenges? How does this lead to innovation? These were two of the main questions discussed at a recent panel hosted by Xylem at Stockholm World Water Week. The panel participants discussed women and water, why diversity and inclusion are so important to water management, and gave tips on how organizations can make sure everyone’s voice is heard.
RYE BROOK, N.Y., August 27, 2019 /3BL Media/ - During World Water Week 2019, which is set to address the theme of “water for society – including all,” global water technology company Xylem Inc. (NYSE: XYL), and Planet Water Foundation, a leading non-profit organization that addresses global water poverty by delivering clean water access and hygiene education programs, have announced plans to extend and deepen their partnership.
This summer, Xylem invited colleagues to participate in plogging – a new signature Watermark activity that embodies Xylem’s commitment to safeguarding the environment and contributing to our local communities.
Plogging is a global fitness trend that combines jogging (or walking) and picking up trash. While plogging, volunteers spend time outdoors, exercise, and pick up litter that often flows untreated into waterways, contaminating water sources, and threatening the health of animals and plants.
