With its prominent role in the chlorine industry, the WCC participated in the conference to emphasize the pivotal role of chlorine in maintaining clean and safe water supplies. The council highlighted the significance of chlorine-based disinfection techniques in preventing waterborne diseases and improving public health, aligning with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
During the conference, the WCC unveiled a series of resources aimed at promoting sustainable water practices while addressing the SDGs and how they are specifically related to chlorine chemistry.
The WCC’s active participation in the United Nations Water Conference received widespread appreciation, with attendees commending the council’s efforts to prioritize sustainability and align with the SDGs. The conference facilitated valuable knowledge exchange and identified potential collaborations between the WCC and other organizations dedicated to water conservation and sustainable development.
As global concerns over water scarcity and pollution continue to escalate, the WCC’s dedication to sustainable water practices and chlorine’s crucial role in ensuring safe water supplies positions the organization as a key contributor to the global water agenda and the SDGs. The council’s initiatives showcased at the conference demonstrate a proactive step towards addressing pressing water challenges and working towards a more sustainable future in line with the SDGs.
