By offsetting the flights from the Global Water Summit in May 2022, we provided 800 households with sanitation to people who would otherwise have no access to a toilet. By doing this, we offset approximately 800 tons of CO2 equivalent.
In informal settlements where sewers are not an option, container-based systems such as SOIL’s Cap-Haitien dry latrine enable hygienic and private sanitation, emitting less CO2e/household/year compared to traditional onsite sanitation systems. By keeping the faecal sludge dry, the methane emissions emitted are 7 times less than that of a wet latrine system.
We are proud to be working alongside SOIL once again for the 2023 Global Water Summit, offsetting the carbon produced by attendee travel whilst also contributing to SDG6. The world’s most international water conference is also the most carbon-friendly – Click here to secure your seat in Berlin today.
SOIL is a non-profit research and development organization working in Haiti to design, test, and implement sustainable and cost-effective solutions to the sanitation crisis. SOIL focuses on pioneering approaches to sustainable sanitation service delivery that combine innovative service delivery models and new technologies with a strategic, catalytic approach to financial sustainability.
SOIL provides full-cycle sanitation services from containment to reuse by taking a circular economy approach. Find out more about SOIL here.
In recent years carbon reduction strategies have been pushed to the forefront of utility priorities. If these utilities are to reach their goals, participants from across the water sector supply chain will need to come together and share their knowledge as to how we can reach net zero.
To this end, Global Water Intelligence has spent the last year collecting data that provides a better picture of the carbon landscape in the water sector.
We have mapped carbon in the water sector, and through a series of openly accessible webinars and white papers, we have helped identify the different greenhouse gas emission hotspots within the water cycle, whilst also exploring the technological solutions that can help utilities achieve their net zero goals.
