RobecoSAM Water Facts

To coincide with the launch of its new study, "Water: the market of the future", RobecoSAM, the investment specialist focused exclusively on Sustainability Investing (SI), has created a special Water Facts infographic.

According to the findings of the study realeased last week, demographic change, aging infrastructure, higher water quality standards and climate change are the four key megatrends shaping the global water market which is expected to rebound and reach USD 1 trillion by 2025. RobecoSAM expects companies that are early to respond and take steps to capitalize on the market opportunities associated with solving water-related challenges to gain a competitive advantage and achieve commercial success. In turn, investors with a long-term horizon have the opportunity to profit from the favorable market environment by investing in attractive investment opportunities along the water value chain.
