A safe and secure water circuit is ultimately about improving the quality of people’s lives and of systems, as cities and infrastructure become ever-more complex. We believe that the Smart Places of the future require a Smart Water Circuit, and that a holistic vision is needed to plan for future development. In addition to global sector expertise, this includes using technology to increase operational efficiency of services, processes, people and things by connecting humans and systems with data. In a digital round table, our water team invited public and private sector leaders and frontrunners to share their perspectives, experiences and methodologies around opportunities facing the water sector and their vision of what the water circuit of the future could be. We also shared our experiences and innovations in creating a virtuous water cycle at Amsterdam International Water Week, a biennial event that gathers experts from cities, industries, and utilities from around the world to showcase innovative solutions and real-life water cases.
