Water, a valuable natural resourceSustainable water consumption is essential to reduce global disease, improve social welfare and increase economic productivity in populations. It is therefore important to raise awareness of its use. Conscious use of water guarantees its quality and prevents it from degrading. In this way, you can ensure its future availability. Without unpolluted water, it is impossible for life to exist on our planet earth. In fact, water is so indispensable to humanity that its improper use would cause disease and deplete entire populations. That is why, since Greenuso we invite you to face the water crisis from now on! Through the protection and responsible consumption of water all corners of the planet will have access to clean water. This must be free of contaminating agents, guaranteeing its accessibility in the present and towards the future.

6. Efficient resource managementToday, global society is facing a real water crisis that can only be countered through sustainable water consumption, promoting clean energy and optimizing production processes. That is why, among other things, it is necessary to regulate water use in river basins. In this way, water processes are optimised, thus achieving
- Decrease in water consumption . This would guarantee improvements in the distribution networks, the detection of breakdowns, leaks and others.
- Improved quality of the water discharged
