    The BASF Group operates globally and must plan its water consumption along the entire value chain according to the respective catchment area. For example, water is used for the manufacture of products, as a coolant and cleaning agent and as a transport route. Against this background, it is therefore an obligation to reduce emissions to water through production processes and to optimize them through the multiple use of water in cycles.

    E.ON, iWater Group, K+S - Water as a safety factor

    • Water

    Clean water is a high social good. In water management, different standards apply to safety depending on the use. For example, the requirements for drinking water supply and wastewater disposal are particularly high, as these areas are part of the critical infrastructure in Germany. In this context, utilities and plant operators are subject to particularly high IT security standards. An impairment caused by a cyber attack could possibly lead to supply bottlenecks and disruptions to public safety.

    • Water

    Water is a staple food for humans and animals. The importance of water is constantly increasing with the growing population and the steadily rising demands for prosperity. Based on that trend, water becomes interesting for companies and investors from different perspectives. On the one hand, water extraction has become a business and on the other hand, environmentally friendly cleaning is becoming more and more relevant. The disposal of heavily polluted water has also become a challenge in today's more environmentally conscious world.

    Water resources around the globe are increasingly polluted by pollutants. The pursuit of prosperity, luxury and safety comes at a price. More people need more food and the yield per hectare must increase through the use of more fertilizers and pesticides. The intake of medicines by humans and animals is also not without its consequences and so drug residues are increasingly becoming a problem. But where there are problems, new business opportunities also arise.
