Imagine H2O Smart Water Hub Program Overview

Advancing Environmental Sustainability through Water Innovation

China continues to strengthen its commitment to the protection of the environment and water, air and soil quality. According to recent estimates, investment in environmental protection will reach € 2.15 trillion over the next five years with a considerable amount of resources directed towards water stewardship. Investment is being matched by political support to develop and enforce new environmental standards—further accelerating efforts by industry and government to support an environmentally sustainable future.

Along with program partners PureTerra Ventures and Isle Utilities, Imagine H2O’s Smart Water Hub aims to showcase promising new water solutions for the China market. This select group of water technology businesses have been vetted for China market readiness, commercial viability and impact on water resource management. The Smart Water Hub will host interactive discussions with industry leaders to highlight the opportunities and challenges to the deployment of water innovation in China. Case studies and workshops will provide an opportunity to elaborate on the path forward. A dedicated pitch session will enable each Smart Water Hub exhibitor to present to a distinguished panel of judges and broader audience of water industry professionals.
