As a company specializing in water filtration technology and sustainable solutions, Amiad provides clean water to more than 80 countries globally and employs over 700 people worldwide. We are highly aware of the symbiotic relationship between water and jobs which was the theme of this year’s World Water Day and have supported the cause of the United Nation’s World Water Day for many years. This year’s theme gave us a fantastic opportunity to explain why the careful management of water is fundamental to sustaining global growth whilst providing employment for an ever-increasing population.

Education is vital if we are to pass on our understanding of the importance of access to clean water. We are proud to say that, once again, we expanded our activities this year – holding 31 educational events at 28 institutions across Israel, the USA, Australia, Mexico and, for the first time, the UK. Significantly, this year we held events for adults as well as schoolchildren reflecting the fact that education is a lifelong process which continues well beyond childhood. Over the course of a month, Amiad employees met with over 1,700 people, around 200 more than we did in 2015! This reflects our continuing commitment to supporting the vital work undertaken by World Water Day and reaffirms our position as a passionate advocate of the necessity of societal responsibility regarding water use.
We are delighted with the success of these events, which were enjoyed by all participants young and old. The kind words relayed to our hardworking employees are testimony to the engaging nature of our events and the success with which they conveyed the vital message regarding water and jobs.

      We are very proud of all those who participated in our World Water Day activities, and I would like to thank our employees for their tremendous efforts.
