The Global Water Footprint

Why does the global water footprint matter?

You may have heard about the ‘carbon footprint’, but the ‘water footprint’ is just as important.

One in nine people today-785 million of us-do not have access to clean, safe water. At the same time, over the last century water use across the globe has been increasing at double the rate of population growth as cities expand, and more people choose to live in urban areas.

Water has become an incredibly valuable resource, and we need to start treating it that way!
