Sustainable Development Goal 6 is crystal clear: water for all by 2030.
Achieving this goal relies on the participation of a range of stakeholders, including businesses, who both impact on, and depend upon our shared water resources. Even in a water rich country like Ireland, we face enormous water challenges. As a country, we use over 3 billion litres of water each day, with industry and agribusiness accounting for up to 73% of this. With a predicted 40% gap between global water supply and demand by 2030, this is clearly one of the critical sustainability challenges of our time. To address this challenge, decisive collective action by industry and national stakeholders is required.
