NETAFIM WINS 2013 STOCKHOLM INDUSTRY WATER AWARD
Netafim is honored to have been named the 2013 Stockholm Industry Water Award (SIWA) Laureate.
SIWA recognizes the business sector’s contribution to sustainable water management. One of the world’s most important water
industry awards, SIWA annually honors one company that has demonstrated devoted water stewardship through impressive
achievements in its water usage.
Why Netafim Was Selected
“Globally, 70 percent of our finite freshwater is used for irrigation, and with rapidly expanding demand for agricultural products, there is a dire
need to improve water productivity,” said the SIWA Committee in its citation. “Netafim’s remarkable achievements, helping farmers across the world
to ‘grow more with less‘, are directly contributing to a more water- and food-secure world.”
What SIWA Means to Netafim
"We are truly honored to receive the Stockholm Industry Water Award,” said Netafim CEO Igal Aisenberg. “As the global pioneer and leader
in drip irrigation, we have always focused on saving water. With water and land scarcity topping the list of today's major global challenges,
we're leveraging our expertise and experience in drip technology to help combat food price inflation, ensure food security, and achieve water sustainability.
This prestigious award is testimony to our efforts, and inspires us to continue to help reduce water usage and make the world a better, more sustainable place."
