EDMONTON, March 22, 2012 /CNW/ - To mark World Water Day 2012, EPCOR Utilities Inc. has released a series of video shorts that touch on the results of the RBC 2012 Water Issues poll, and provide perspective on what individuals and industry should do about it.
"Canadians have one of the highest rates of water consumption per capita in the world," says Bob Sandford, EPCOR Chair in support of the United Nations "Water for Life" Decade in Action initiative in Canada. "Although we're all becoming more conservation-minded, our attitudes don't match our actions, and we could all do a lot more as individuals. Proactive industry should also look to best practices around the world and consult outside expertise to collaborate on a strategy to optimize water use. I've seen solutions that can be truly good for business and the environment."
The video series features Bob Sandford discussing the following topics:
- the importance of investment in water infrastructure
- the value of water in our economy
- industry and water conservation
The videos were produced to promote EPCOR's commitment to protecting our water heritage and preserving resources for the future.
The videos can also be viewed at www.youtube.com/EPCOR.
