Xylem, a global water technology company, and non-profit Planet Water Foundation have announced plan to extend their partnership to bring safe drinking water to half a million people every year.
Launched 8 years ago, the partnership addresses water access issues in the world’s most impoverished communities. Soon Planet Water Foundation will integrate Xylem’s pump products into its water filtration and sanitation solutions.
Since 2011, the two companies have provided education and access to safe potable water in over 400 communities in 12 countries, offering drinking water to nearly 500,000 people. Under the expanded partnership, Xylem’s involvement will extend to over 1,100 projects across 13 countries, adding Xylem’s pumping solutions to water systems.
