Why invest in water solutions?

Water is the principal building block for life. Without water, we’d be absolutely nowhere. Global warming is creating lots more arid, dry summer climates in countries that previously experienced the damage caused by lack of water.

Importance of water solutions

It’s said that water will soon become more valuable than oil due to increased demand from consumers, industry and agriculture. The scarcity of water is likely to prove a major hindrance for a variety of industries, including oil and gas, pharmaceutical and mining sectors.

Experts predict that by the year 2035, 40% of the world’s population will be living in locations where water is in scarce supply. This means desalination and water recycling will become the norm. Industry already uses around 20% of global water supplies, and many authorities are cutting back on permissions for industrial water extraction. This will increase pressures on business to re-use or desalinate.

All in all, it’s likely that investing in water solutions will prove a wise option in coming years. If you would like to find out more about our tailored investment solutions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
