EXCELLENCE IN WATER
A United Approach
Navigating environmental regulatory compliance can be a colossal task. There are chasms in the global collaboration, as standards in the U.S. and other parts of the world vary.
Learning from advances in Europe, there is a collaborative emphasis on environmental, social and governance (ESG), bringing into focus well being and success beyond financial measurements. Right now, U.S. companies only need to report on ESG aspects that impact financial performance. This makes ESG more about risk than opportunity. When we look at ESG as opportunity, it offers market “hot spots” worth up to US$12 trillion a year in business savings and revenue in four examined economic systems by 2030. These markets are Food and Agriculture, Cities, Energy, Materials, and Health and Wellbeing. (Better Business, Better World Report, 2017).
The full extent of ESG as an opportunity is yet to be fully captured. A way to unlock this opportunity in your business is through embedding the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into business strategies. These global goals are an evidence-based way of measuring impact to create a world where we value people and nature. They help businesses and governments make better decisions.
Right now, the SDGs are used more by big business and governments. When small businesses like ours start working with them, we:
• amplify our ability to influence big business through the supply chain
• give ourselves the competitive edge
• showcase the positive impact of our business decisions
• start to influence government with our united voice
The Magnation mission is focused primarily on SDG6: Ensure access to clean water and sanitation.
“Water does not need to be a problem – it can be part of the solution.”
Audrey Azoulay, Director-General: UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
Water is a basic human right. It is our responsibility to adapt how we use water every year so that we use just the right amount. Water is the new gold. We cannot waste a drop.
While the Magnation mission is to solve complex water challenges, we believe in an Earth system approach to protecting and rehabilitating our environment. That’s why we integrated more than one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into our business strategy.
We’ve learned a lot through integrating them into our business. Here’s how you can get started on your own journey.
Connect with SDGs that are already part of your business model
The SDGs are 17 complex goals that highlight what we need to do to create a sustainable future for all live in Earth. Trying to understand the goals and how they work is challenging. Their strength is that they bring together the environment, society and the economy into one. Their weakness is that they are written in the language of academia and corporate.
At Magnation, we identified 5 SDGs that are part of our business right now:

Soft water is also more productive water, requiring less of it to permeate into soils saving 10-30% in irrigation water. Due to enhanced solubility, less water chemicals are needed for more sustainable practices in any industry. And with easier-to-move water, less energy demand is a requirement for sustainability.
