– Dan created an innovative program of social responsibility to spread awareness on water usage as a collective resource in his job at Xylem. Dan is also Founder of Aqua Semper, a no-profit organization that supports international companies to support social investment projects. The last five years of his life have been completely dedicated to solving the water challenges, build towers and water intake systems in the Philippines and in Cambodia. Today, still over 600 million people don’t have access to potable water. The objective of the Watermark social model is to reach 100,000 volunteering hours, a valuable amount of time where Xylem employees can help communities all over the world. A transition between the business vision, geared towards making a profit, and the creation of values coming from the employees. A virtuous case that created a strong and catching social value through volunteering included in working hours. Every drop matters and has the power to make change happen. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
