Unique alliance drives action for healthy watersheds

An alliance to help restore and create healthy watersheds has been announced by three leading global water sector organisations. Technology and business consultancy Isle, together with global corporate water strategy and innovation advisor Water Foundry, and water specialist communication and brand company Atlantean Media have announced an alliance to harness their cross-sector expertise to link the public and private markets.

The three organisations have said they are dedicated to creating a catalytic community dedicated to establishing and sustaining healthy watersheds globally by aligning practical interventions with strategic expertise, helping to marry tangible solutions with long-term ambitions. The partners are committed to working with stakeholders across the water value chain, with the aim of contributing to economic development, business growth, ecosystem health and social wellbeing.

Watershed health is critical to the environment we all live and work in. Corporations and innovative technology companies working with the public sector, NGOs, investors, academic institutions and civil society have unique capabilities and scale to create and maintain healthy watersheds. The partners believe that for healthy watersheds to thrive, businesses need to be engaged and driven with a collective purpose.

Benjamin Tam, chief executive, Isle, said: “We believe everyone should live in, and have access, to healthy watersheds. However, progress has been fragmented to date. As Isle continues to grow and evolve, we’re excited to partner with Water Foundry and Atlantean to present a unique consultancy offering to the market.”

Will Sarni, founder and chief executive of Water Foundry said: “Water Foundry continually looks to partner with like-minded organisations that have a bias for action and a solutions-oriented approach to solve global water challenges Both Isle and Atlantean Media are aligned with our mission, strategy and commitment to drive meaningful global and local impact.”

Tom Freyberg, founder and managing director of Atlantean Media, said: “To create healthy watersheds, a multi-stakeholder approach is needed, from multinationals to utilities, from investors to start-ups, from academia to engineers. Uniting the Isle, Water Foundry, and Atlantean global networks, we can connect the right organisations with a bias for action to make a change.”
