IWA Climate Smart Utilities Recognition Programme
Call for Applications
Recognition Programme 2022 powered by Xylem
The international Water Association is calling on applicants to apply to its Climate Smart Utilities Recognition Programme. This Programme aims to inspire utilities, their managements, and political principles to transition to become increasingly Climate Smart and embrace the cultural shift on three interconnected pillars:
1. Adaptation: Resilience in the face of climate change is increased
2. Mitigation: GHG emissions are assessed and aim to be reduced
3. Leadership: you are a national, regional or international champion
This Recognition Programme builds on the vision endorsement (awareness step) to invite utilities who are already taking any kind of “climate smart” action to apply to be celebrated as utilities on the journey to becoming climate smart. The first Recognition Programme event, or “Climate Smart Utilities Celebration” will take place at the IWA World Water Congress and Exhibition (WWCE), in Copenhagen, 12-15 September 2022.
Your application is an opportunity to self-reflect on your progression on the journey to becoming "Climate-Smart", articulating your utility actions against 3 to 4 components around each of the three pillars described in the guidance document with a text depicting an ideal Climate-Smart Utility.
