Meeting these challenges is Xylem’s reason for being. Our solutions address all stages of the cycle of water, from water transport, treatment and testing to the uses of water in industrial, residential, commercial, and agricultural applications. We have one of the farthest-reaching distribution footprints in the world, and our opportunity remains vast. Xylem has a strategy to further penetrate this global market as we help bring about a future where today’s water challenges no longer exist.
Three Ways of Looking at Water
We view water solutions through the lens of water productivity, water quality and resilience:
- Water productivity refers to increasing the efficiency of how clean water is produced, distributed and consumed.
- Water quality refers to the efficient and effective management of wastewater.
- Resilience refers to the management of water-related risks and the resilience of water infrastructure.
Xylem’s customers often face all three of these challenges, ranging from inefficient, aging water distribution networks, which require increases in water productivity; to energy-intensive or unreliable wastewater management systems, which require increases in water quality; to exposure to natural disasters such as floods or droughts, which demand increases in resilience. Our deep expertise with this diverse range of water challenges allows us to solve water across all sectors, in all parts of the world.
