Nalco Endorses United Nations' CEO Water Mandate

Nalco has deepened its commitment to the United Nations Global Compact with the endorsement of the CEO Water Mandate by Chairman and CEO Erik Fyrwald. "As the global leader in industrial water treatment, we recognize water use and availability is a critical global issue that negatively impacts millions," Fyrwald said in his letter to United Nations Secretary General H.E. Ban Ki-moon.

The World Health Organization states that one fifth of the world's population (more than 1.1 billion people) live in areas where water is physically scarce. By 2025 the UN estimates 1.8 billion people will live in countries or regions suffering from absolute water scarcity -- meaning water demand by all users cannot be fully met by available supplies.

Nalco has committed to support and advance water sustainability solutions within the company's sphere of influence in the six areas covered by the CEO Water Mandate: Direct Operations; Supply Chain and Watershed Management; Collective Action; Public Policy; Community Engagement; and Transparency.

Nalco has been helping various industries use water more efficiently for decades. For example, 3D TRASAR® Cooling Water technology helped industrial customers reduce their water use by 75 billion gallons in 2009. In support of the CEO Water Mandate, Nalco is also evaluating its own water use to set internal reduction targets.
