​Xylem Water Solutions is counted among the predominant corporate supporters of the Stockholm Water Prize, which include a spectrum of national and international companies. Environmental care is an inherent part of the Xylem Inc´s management strategy and permeates all of its operations.
 
It is no secret that many of Xylem Water Solutions´s products are put to good use in environmental applications around the world, particularly in the areas of wastewater treatment.
