Wine to Water Virtual Filter Build Experience
Business OpportunitiesNovember 27, 2020
As part of the PrimeGlobal 2021 Tax and Business Assurance Virtual Conferences, delegates have an opportunity to engage in an important and innovative CSR experience. Teambuilding with a Purpose is a highlight of the Tax and Business Assurance conferences and this year is no different.
We will continue striving for social progress through our partnership with Wine to Water (W|W) whose mission is to support life and dignity for all through the power of clean water. Their strength is rooted in partnership and deep community relationships developed through the implementation of water access, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) solutions.
The (W|W) Filter Build initiative is designed to engage our community in a meaningful team experience that leads to the empowerment of communities around the globe through the power of clean water. Through this partnership, PrimeGlobal directly contributes to reaching over 1,500 people with clean water for 10 years.
ENVIRONMENTAL AND ECONOMIC IMPACT OF W|W FILTERS
W|W Filters provide an immediate access to water while significantly reducing individual and collective environmental footprints.
By investing in water and sanitation, filter build partners are investing in the global GDP. For every dollar invested in water and sanitation programs, 4.3 dollars are returned to the economy of the impacted community and “includes an overall estimated gain of 1.5% of global GDP” (WHO).
Filters reduce dependency on bottled water. One filter implemented in a disaster setting can replace 50,000 plastic bottles in four to six months. Filters from every W|W Filter Build℠ are reserved for natural disaster responses. In the Bahamas alone, 1,295 W|W filters replaced 64,750,000 plastic, providing immediate clean water to more than 14,000 people after Hurricane Dorian.
Access to clean drinking water prevents waterborne diseases, which is the leading cause of death for children under age five, thereby eliminating treatment expenses.
