2013 Stockholm Industry Water Award. Netafim is honored to be named the 2013 Stockholm Industry Water Award (SIWA) Laureate. SIWA recognizes the business sector’s contribution to sustainable water management. One of the world’s most important water industry awards, SIWA annually honors one company that has demonstrated devoted water stewardship through impressive achievements in its water usage. “Globally, 70 percent of our finite freshwater is used for irrigation and with rapidly expanding demand for agricultural products, there is a dire need to improve water productivity,” said SIWA Committee in its citation. “Netafim’s remarkable achievements, helping farmers across the world to ‘grow more with less’, are directly contributing to a more water-and-food-secure world.” Netafim CEO Igal Aisenberg had the following to say about the SIWA Award, “We are truly honored to receive the Stockholm Industry Water Award. As the global pioneer and leader in drip irrigation, we have always focused on saving water. With water and land scarcity topping the list of today’s major global challenges, we’re leveraging our expertise and experience in drip technology to help combat food price inflation, ensure food security, and achieve water sustainability. This prestigious award is testimony to our efforts and inspires us to continue to help reduce water usage and make the world a better and more sustainable place.” Read more about the SIWA Award
