Value of Water Coalition steering committee member Veolia’s Senior Vice President for Sustainability and Public Affairs of North America, Edwin Piñero, recently spoke at the City Club of Cleveland regarding business and the value of water. Ed noted that demand for water continues to increase as populations grow and sectors like energy and agriculture require massive water use to operate. How we value water- as a sophisticated service that is highly technical, heavily engineered, and capital-intensive- will determine water’s future. Ed spotlights five key pillars needed to solve water issues: technology, awareness and education, policy, attitude and behavior, and making a business case for water.
