Empower the global population by providing them with effective solutions that promote sustainability
Only a mere 0.025% of all water on Earth is both fresh and easily accessible. 97% of water is saline and a little less than 3% of the remaining water is hard to access. Technically, there is a sufficient amount of freshwater on a global scale. However, due to unequal distribution (exacerbated by climate change) resulting in some very wet and some very dry geographic locations, plus a sharp rise in global freshwater demand in recent decades, driven by commercial interests, humanity is facing a drinking water crisis. Demand is expected to outstrip supply by 40% in 2030 if current trends continue.
IWG is dedicated to directly addressing this crisis. We have carefully constructed a management team with over 150 years of experience and committed nearly two decades to R&D through its subsidiaries. IWG intends to utilise its expertise and existing industry-changing product range, combined with its dedication for ongoing R&D to effectively make a difference in the face of this global crisis.
Our team understands that the issue we face as a human race is not necessarily a shortage of water, but more a scarcity of clean drinking water, fit for human consumption. We believe that our expertise and products now offer a range of solutions that can effectively make a difference in promoting ecological sustainability across a vast range of sectors.
The ultimate goal, through continued R&D and increased field expertise, is to empower the global population by providing them with effective solutions that promote sustainability. Whether this will be direct water decontamination resulting in a higher availability of water for human and animal consumption or providing alternative methods to age-old issues such as antibiotics in livestock, pesticides in field crop or the release of H2S in our atmosphere within the oil and gas sector – IWG will endeavour to lead and provide effective, sustainable solutions.
