PORT ST. LUCIE, FL, United States, via ETELIGIS INC., 01/20/2015 – – Water Technologies International, Inc. (OTC Pink: WTII) (PINKSHEETS: WTII), the leader in the technology in atmospheric water generator’s production and design, is pleased to announce that it has been granted membership into the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principals in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption.
Endorsed by chief executives, the UNGC is a practical framework for the development, implementation, and disclosure of sustainability policies and practices, offering participants a wide spectrum of work streams, management tools and resources all designed to help advance sustainable business models and markets.
In addition to the recent approval into the UNGC, the CEO of Water Technologies International, Mr. Scott Tudor has become a signatory of The CEO Water Mandate, acknowledging his responsibility to make water-resources management a priority. Mr. Tudor will work with governments, UN agencies, non-governmental organizations, and other stakeholders to address this global water challenge.
Mr. Tudor said, “Water Technologies has always strived toward the mission to promote clean water sustainability and address global issues related to water. By joining the United Nations Global Compact we will be able to implement our mission through the help of the UNGC’s collaborations. We will assist in emergency response efforts by sharing our water generation and filtration solutions, and by executing strategies for future drinking water challenges.”
Access to clean water is a vital component in the current fight against the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. According to Wall Street Journal, it takes about 53 gallons of water to treat just one patient with Ebola. Mr. Tudor was quick to sign the CEO Action Pledge on Ebola Eradication in response to this need as outlined by UNMEER, the Ebola Private Sector Mobilization Group, and other contributing agencies. Water Technologies is honored to have the opportunity to provide atmospheric water generators as a possible global solution to eradicating the Ebola disease.
