Nurturing Every Drop: World Water Day and Sustainable Water Management Solutions
March 22, 2024

World Water Day acts as an annual reminder of water’s importance and the urgent need for sustainable water management. With escalating global water challenges, it's crucial to implement practices that ensure responsible usage and conservation.

At EFL Global, we recognize the logistics industry’s environmental impact on water supplies worldwide. We actively engage in conservation efforts, counteracting ecosystem contamination through passion projects.

Facing changes in the water cycle, we tackle challenges like more frequent droughts and floods by adopting innovative management techniques such as rainwater harvesting and desalination.

“Sustainable water management begins with empowering communities to be stewards of their water resources. At EFL Global, we promote the efficient usage of water among our employees, who we believe will educate their families, and eventually, communities to be mindful of water management”, says Jayamal Rathnayake, Marketing & Sustainability Associate Manager, EFL Global – Sri Lanka. Our sustainability team collaborates with organizations worldwide, implementing water management solutions in underserved areas.

One such initiative involved distributing portable water filtration systems to rural Massai and Kampo villages in Kenya, highlighting our commitment to sustainable water solutions. We also installed rainwater harvesting systems in Costa Rica, addressing the need for clean water supply on Isla Caballo.

In Vietnam, we restored clean water access to a kindergarten, while in South Africa, we renovated and maintained 'Play Pumps' providing clean groundwater to schools. These projects reflect our dedication to providing clean water access and promoting social sustainability.

EFL Global is committed to pioneering sustainable water management solutions to address future challenges and promote environmental stewardship. By acknowledging the challenges and embracing innovative approaches, let’s strive for a future where every drop of water is valued and preserved for generations to come.
