Global Water Summit 2022 releases Water-Positive Zero Carbon agenda

Returning after two years, the 2022 Global Water Summit, organised by Global Water Intelligence (GWI), is now set to take place in Madrid on 16-18 May 2022. The conference will unpack the developments, issues and opportunities across the global water sector within the theme Water-Positive Zero Carbon.

The 2022 Global Water Summit will explore the ways that climate change is changing water. The synergies between emissions and water security, together with the global political commitment for climate action, create the potential for transformational change.

The conference will assemble business leaders and decision makers from across the international water sector to discuss the major trends. The three-day agenda will include a variety of sessions within six strands, including Defining Water Positive, The Smart Way to Zero, a two-part workshop The SDG 6 Challenge, Accelerating New Models for Desal, Supersizing Potable Water Reuse, Next Generation Water Technologies for Industry, Leading to Race to Zero, and much more.

The 2022 Global Water Summit offers an opportunity for the global water industry to come together. It is an essential opportunity to disseminate information and drive the global conversation around water-positivity and the zero-carbon movement while giving a complete business-focused global overview to the leaders of the water sector.

In recognition of the environmental impact of international conferences, the Global Water Summit has also announced a carbon pledge. Investing to reduce water industry carbon emissions by 500tCO2e, more than double that generated by travel to the event, this carbon offset pledge demonstrates the commitment to the objectives of the conference.
