Water Conservation High Priority for Consumers

A large majority of consumers believe water conservation should be a high priority for businesses, according to an Ecolab survey. New data from a global survey conducted and commissioned by Ecolab, a global sustainability leader offering water, hygiene and infection prevention solutions and services, has revealed high consumer expectations for the role of companies in water access and conservation.

The Water, Sustainability and Climate Change survey consulted thousands of consumers across eight different countries. The survey revealed:

  • 74% of consumers believe businesses should make water conservation a high or essential priority;
  • Just 25% of consumers believe companies are taking the right amount of action to conserve water; and
  • More than 60% of consumers said that they or a family member have had trouble accessing drinking water.
