Water Unite, as host for the Global Investment Fund for Water (GIFFW), is an ambitious new non-profit organization that is partnering with the retail bottled water industry to end water poverty. By capturing a tiny fraction of bottled water revenues, we aim to generate a significant, sustained source of funds to be used for targeted investments that provide sustainable water services to those who need it most and tackle the sanitation challenge, while also contributing to the reduction of plastic waste. GIFFW answers a real need for a catalytic investment vehicle for water and sanitation projects that engages the private sector, governments, civil society and other stakeholders, and provides comprehensive plans on how such funds could be deployed. It will draw on development, finance and industry best practice with a recognised, independent brand that assures consumers of the highest levels of industry engagement and transparency.
