DuPont Water Solutions Sponsors W12+ ‘Congress for Water Security’

DuPont Water Solutions says it is a key sponsor of the W12 Congress – an international conference and expo that seeks to create the world’s first water protocol for major cities and strengthen citizen-driven governance of sustainable water solutions.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was postponed twice and reinvented into a drive-in convention, augmented with a virtual component for participants opting not to travel.

The event, W12 World Water Premier for a Waterwise Future for All, which took place in Capetown, South Africa, on October 22, as a vehicle for participants to plan new initiatives to create global water resilience.

DuPont Water Solutions, a global leader in water purification and separation technologies, sponsored the event to help facilitate the conversation around a more optimistic water future.

“The W12 Congress is a critical event because it brings together a cross-section of stakeholders including government, finance, technology innovators and artists to help solve for the impacts of water scarcity that affect economic conditions, gender equality and basic health for so many communities,” said Kimberly Kupiecki, global sustainability leader, DuPont Water Solutions.

“DuPont will continue to contribute to holistic solutions through the lens of engagement and innovation as well as education and knowledge to help solve water scarcity particularly in the most vulnerable of cities such as Cape Town.”

The W12 World Water Premier for a Waterwise Future for All will be a world first. As well as being able to attend the event entirely digitally, the socially-distanced congress also boasted a drive-in cinema, for an estimated 100 vehicles, with a maximum of two persons per car.

The event focused on different strategies to bring solutions and lower negative impacts.
