The current situation

Water is an increasingly scarce and contentious resource on our planet. 844 million people do not have access to safe water, while 1 in 3 people live without adequate sanitation.

In Italy, the average consumption per inhabitant is around 241 litres per day, confirming its leading position in Europe in terms of per capita water consumption.

 

 

Our ambition

Reduce the litres of water consumed each day by CAP users to reach the ambitious target of 180 litres per capita per day, bringing it closer to the European average.

  • Promote consumption of water from the first aquifer, not potable but suitable for uses other than direct human consumption.
  • Education in schools, for the young and very young, on conscious water use.
  • Communication campaigns and gamification of consumption for families aimed at reducing consumption.
