Clean Water Campaign

NativeEnergy's Clean Water Campaign will improve the lives of thousands by installing water filters in homes and schools across Kenya, Ghana, Honduras, Ethiopia, Asia and other communities. Simple, proven household water filters eliminate the common practice of burning unsustainably harvested firewood to boil dirty water. Carbon reductions deliver additional value to address corporate greenhouse gas emissions goals.

The Clean Water Campaign is among more than 50 projects in our Help Build program in which corporate sustainability leaders invest critical upfront funding in exchange for environmental, social, and brand benefits, including premium quality carbon offsets.

World Water Week Just Passed. Did You Notice?
Today, 780 million individuals still live without access to clean and safe water sources. Two and a half billion people lack access to improved sanitation facilities. One billion people defecate in the open.  Is that too much information? Which leads me to ask why do I, or you as a business professional, care? Clean water is like oxygen.
