The importance of conscious management of drinking water

Drinking water is a vital resource that directly affects our health and environmental well-being. In Italy, despite the fact that 86.4% of families connected to the municipal water network say they are satisfied with the water service, 28.8% express mistrust in drinking tap water. This distrust underlines the importance of ensuring the quality and safety of our water resources for human consumption.

It is also essential to consider the broader context of the Sustainable Development Goals. Even among the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations, there are more goals dedicated to water well-being; an example is Goal 6, which focuses on the availability and sustainable management of water, or Goal 13, which addresses the urgency of combating climate change and its consequences. Our commitment to these goals is also reflected in our efforts to make production processes more efficient and sustainable.

However, the problems associated with drinking water management are not limited to its purification. In 2022, 42.2% of water injected into the network was lost through leaks at the distribution stage, underlining the need to improve the efficiency of our water systems. In addition, environmental concerns, such as climate change, add further complexity to water management: 70.8% of respondents in 2023 indicated that the effects of climate change are one of their main environmental concerns, and 70% of people aged 14 years or older say they take care not to waste water.

In this context, innovative solutions in the field of valves and fittings for water systems play a crucial role. Our DVGW valve line is an excellent example of products designed to ensure safe, high-quality drinking water.
