Our son, Christian who was travelling for his company, Xylem in the Philippines. last week as one stop on his trip to the East.  Xylem  is an international company with plants and projects all over the world; working to insure that our most important element , clean fresh  water, is available.

Xylem’s mission statement:

“Sustainability is at the very center of who we are and what we do at Xylem.  As a leading global water technology company, we deal with one of the world’s most urgent sustainability issues — responsible stewardship of our shared water resources — on a daily basis.  Our linkage to this huge, extremely urgent challenge informs how we think about sustainability and drives us to move with speed to become a more sustainable company.”

Xylem not only is a business but it  has a charity component of the company called  Watermark. It is an  employees engaged program to protect safe water resources for communities around the globe. In 2014, Xylem won a corporate excellence award due to the achievement of Watermark’s contribution around the world.

Now back to Christian and the tower he and his team built.  It is at a school of 650 students and 16 teachers. They have to use bottled water until this tower was built. But because of Watermark, when school started on June 13, this tower will provide fresh, filtered water!

Thank you Xylem and Watermark for compassionate capitalism.
