Water at GE
Unlike for fossil fuel–based energy, there are no substitutes or alternatives for water. But already around a quarter of the world’s population lives in areas of current or developing water scarcity. Another quarter lacks access to the infrastructure needed to get clean, affordable water to their homes.
In addition to providing products that help governments, companies and communities address water-scarcity challenges and opportunities, GE is working to understand and address the water impacts of our operations and the products we manufacture. This includes understanding our exposure to physical, regulatory and reputational risks as well as looking for ways to reduce the water footprint of our products throughout their lifecycles. We are also advocating for public policies that price water more accurately, so that water reuse becomes a viable and attractive option.
