XPV attends White House Water Summit

Mar 31, 2016

The White House recently hosted the first ever White House Water Summit, held on March 22, 2016, World Water Day. The summit highlighted innovative solutions and strategies from across industries, for use in solving the water problems we are facing in North America and around the world. This provides an important step in changing how we think about, use, and conserve this precious and increasingly scarce resource. Since the White House’s call to action in December 2015, more than 150 other institutions have made public commitments of their own to boost water sustainability in the US, including pledges of over $4 Billion in infrastructure spending and more than $1 Billion in research and development from private sources.

David Henderson, Managing Director at XPV Water Partners, was pleased to be included in this prestigious group of leaders and had an opportunity to speak about this important topic. The full video recording of the event can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-Jcn4UBWro.
