Water Scarcity Concerns
Water, once in abundance, is undoubtedly becoming an increasingly scarce global resource. There is an urgency for companies to invest in water management strategies— both as part of their sustainability efforts to reduce water usage, and to protect their chance at long term success.
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon stated, “By 2030 nearly half the global population could be facing water scarcity. Demand could outstrip supply by 40 per cent” (Source: RT, ‘Water scarcity by 2030‘). KPMG found that of the 250 world’s largest companies, 93% has some form of corporate responsibility reporting, 7% higher than two years ago (Source: KPMG, ‘Survey of Corporate Responsibility Reporting 2013‘). On the back-end, it also means an increase in discharge regulations at their facilities, specifically around their cooling towers and waste water treatments (Source: Chemical Engineering, ‘Cooling Towers: Managing Tighter Water-Discharge Regulations‘). The EPA has been developing several of these regulations as a result of the harmful impacts on aquatic life getting entrapped at once-through cooling intakes, resulting in many industrial facilities considering air-cooled condensers as an alternative.
