In 2018, more than 2 billion people lacked access to safely managed drinking water at home. Water is critical for healthy communities and ecosystems, but increasingly severe climate change impacts, global pandemics and deepening inequality threaten resources. This further impacts food, housing, health and education, and perpetuates a cycle of poverty.

Improving access to clean water and fostering sustainable livelihoods are critical ways to strengthen communities and support a global population expected to reach 9.9 billion by 2050.

As a leading provider of water treatment and sustainable solutions, at Pentair we believe that access to clean, safe water is a fundamental human right and foundational to health, freedom and economic development. Since 1998, Pentair (the “Company”) and the Pentair Foundation (Pentair and the Pentair Foundation together referred to as “Pentair”) have funded philanthropic causes that strengthen the communities in which Pentair operates and that improve access to water in the developing world. Through this legacy of action, Pentair has helped drive lasting social impact by working in partnership with local organizations to tailor solutions to a local context.
