Emilio Tenuta, the vice president of corporate sustainability at Ecolab, knows that simply conserving water isn't enough anymore. In order to meet global water goals, companies have to emphasize recycling water systems and recovering wastewater.
"There are local challenges — and local solutions," he said, mentioning tools and guides that Ecolab has developed.
"We can't do this alone," he said. "We're operating in the same watersheds. We need to think of ways we can collaborate."
