• The emissions reduction in water utilities equates to 623,000 cars driven for one year.
• Xylem reduced its total process water use by 26% since 2019 and moved 12 of its 22 major facilities to 100% process water recycling and reuse.
WD News: Xylem has announced its latest Sustainability Report, in which it has achieved its 2025 CO2e emissions reduction goal well ahead of schedule. It has enabled water utilities to reduce their CO2e emissions by 2.8 million metric tons since 2019.
The reduction was enabled by the deployment of high-efficiency technologies and digital solutions. Xylem also made notable progress in reducing its own emissions, with Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions down 21% year-on-year, while also continuing to make strides on water and waste footprint reductions across its operations.
“As impacts from climate change intensify, water operators in utilities and businesses are leaning in to be part of the solution – embracing advanced technologies that improve the resiliency and sustainability of water systems at an affordable cost – all while lowering carbon emissions,” Patrick Decker, President and CEO of Xylem, said.
