World Environment Day 2024

Protecting Our Planet’s Lifeblood

By: William Grayson | June 5, 2024 | Reading time: 3 minutes
This year’s World Environment Day campaign focuses on land restoration, desertification, and drought resilience under the slogan “Our land. Our future. We are #GenerationRestoration.” One of the major global challenges intertwined with these issues is water scarcity. Although water is often referred to as our most precious resource, the water supply has been taken for granted in some parts of the world and remains a constant challenge in others. The food and beverage (F&B) industry is one of the largest consumers of water for irrigation, processing, and the final product.

As global water scarcity intensifies, optimization, water recycling, reuse, and treatment are vital for protecting this increasingly threatened resource. New trends are evolving in response to the unfolding global crisis. How can you harness these developments in wastewater treatment to significantly contribute towards your sustainability goals, reduce your total cost of ownership, and maintain profitability and your brand reputation?

Protecting Our Planet’s Lifeblood 

Water is our planet’s lifeblood. It is essential in keeping our environment, economy, and society healthy. However, the status of this most precious commodity is increasingly precarious. Rapid population growth, climate change, and geopolitical instability are creating unprecedented pressures. Approximately 703 million people lack access to clean water, which equates to a staggering 1 in 10 people on the planet.

With the increasing scarcity of drinking water, the reduction of water being sent to waste and the reuse of wastewater streams is becoming an urgent ecological and economic priority. Although conserving water or using it smartly may not have been a key priority for the F&B production sector in the past, the new realities are dramatically changing the approach to water treatment. Optimizing water consumption and reusing wastewater is critically important.

Innovation Based on Sound Water Stewardship

The importance of sound water stewardship is reflected in Diversey’s commitment to improving water efficiency in our supply chain. We are constantly innovating to find sustainable solutions in the context of working wisely with water, and it remains a key focus of our ESG initiatives.
