Xylem Scales Sustainability Impacts with New Water Stewardship Commitments

Share

Global water technology leader Xylem (NYSE: XYL) is expanding its sustainability commitments with new 2030 water stewardship goals, following the company’s combination with Evoqua. Xylem’s 2030 goals include enabling its customers to reduce global water demand by at least 2 billion cubic meters, reducing the company’s own water intensity by 30%, and gaining visibility into the water intensity of its supply chain through water stewardship reporting and practices.

The commitments are captured in Xylem’s 2023 Sustainability Report, which also details the company’s progress to advance water security.

Since 2019, Xylem technology has enabled water managers around the world to treat over 13 billion cubic meters of water for reuse – equivalent to the domestic water needs of 197 million people annually. The company’s solutions have also enabled its customers to prevent more than 8 billion cubic meters of polluted water from flooding communities. Both customer impact milestones were achieved two years ahead of schedule.

In 2023, Xylem also achieved notable progress in reducing its operational impacts, saving water, time, energy and resources. Of 22 major facilities, 19 are operating on 100% renewable energy, 17 have achieved 100% process water recycling, and 17 are contributing zero waste to landfills. Half of Xylem’s 22 major facilities have achieved all three goals, with seven facilities across the Philippines, Mexico, Sweden, Germany, and the United States reaching the company’s key operational goals in 2023.

“2023 was a transformative year for Xylem,” said Matthew Pine, President and Chief Executive Officer at Xylem. “We continue to grow and scale our impact through solutions and services that enable a more resilient and sustainable future for our customers and communities. We are focused on building on this momentum and using every avenue to decarbonize the water sector, accelerate water stewardship, and advance water and sanitation access for all.”

The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 – ensuring access to water and sanitation for all – is central to Xylem’s work. In 2023, the company provided clean water and sanitation solutions to 3.8 million people living in under-resourced and water-insecure communities. Following its combination with Evoqua, the company is scaling its WASH efforts by committing to reach an additional 80 million people from 2025 through 2030.

“Xylem’s work is about empowering water utilities, companies, and communities to build a more water-secure world,” said Claudia Toussaint, Chief People and Sustainability Officer at Xylem. “We have an enormous opportunity to tap into our talented and diverse teams to achieve even greater impact. To deliver on that ambition and respond to our customers’ needs at even greater pace, we continue to strengthen our culture of innovation, leadership and accountability across the organization.”
