The urgent need for innovation to address multifaceted and intertwined water-related challenges is becoming increasingly clear, as the public, media and governments place pressure on the water sector across the world to drive down emissions and pollutions.

Meanwhile the water sector is often seen as less innovative than other sectors and can be slow to adopt and adapt new technologies. While water utilities around the world are keen to achieve ‘Net Zero’, adoption of new technologies can be slow, costly and inefficient.

“The climate crisis is unavoidable. Concrete and lasting action is required now from the water sector. The water sector is a major contributor of emissions but has significant potential to produce a positive impact,” said Dr Piers Clark, chairman of Isle.

Isle will be announcing a “game-changing” project that will allow utilities to try new solutions and technologies at no financial risk

What is needed is an innovative new approach - which requires increased R&D and embracing new technologies and ways of working. However, the industry often undergoes multiple 'trials' at great expense without implementing technologies due to cost concerns and internal barriers. We want to change that.”

In a bid to tackle these issues, Isle will be announcing a “game-changing” project that will allow utilities to try new solutions and technologies at no financial risk.

The full details will be revealed during November’s Water Action Platform webinar on Thursday 18th November 2021 at 7.30am and 4.30pm GMT. Click here to sign up to receive the invitation.
