In celebration of World Water Day, Xylem Inc. is launching a month-long volunteer challenge for Xylem colleagues across the globe to highlight the importance of water and environmental issues. Starting today and extending through to Earth Day (April 22), the ‘Make Your Mark 30-Day Challenge’ is an initiative of Xylem Watermark, the Company’s corporate citizenship program, through which Xylem colleagues will be able to volunteer to participate in a range of activities to protect safe water resources and educate communities about water-related challenges.
“As the world community continues to make progress in advancing the Sustainable Development Goals, World Water Day is a powerful reminder of the need for collaboration, education and innovation to advance the smarter use of water and ensure access to safe water for all by 2030,” said Patrick Decker, President and CEO of Xylem. “At Xylem, water is more than our business; it is our passion and our 16,000-strong team across the globe is driven by a shared commitment to solve urgent water challenges and deliver results that matter. Today, we are excited to celebrate this commitment with those around us.”
