Be a
water leader!

Let's talk about water

Why we care about water?!

Water is one of the biggest challenges in the world today. It is also a global issue that requires local solutions and dedicated leadership. At GWF Solutions, we combine our innovative sensor technology and software with our global network of experts to provide an impact-oriented approach to solving the water challenges that water leaders face daily.

We care about the future of our planet and we are deeply passionate about water and the water environment. That`s why we combine our innovative measurement technology and easy to use software platforms and models with our global network of leading water management experts to create targeted solutions to address specific water challenges around the world.

There is no planet B, and we ALL share the responsibility to look after water. Water connects us and we owe it to ourselves, our children and to future generations to look after this precious resource and act now.

As outlined under the UN SDG 6, 2.2 billion people around the world still lack safely managed drinking water, including 785 million without basic drinking water.

Water is essential not only to health, but also to poverty reduction, food security, peace and human rights, ecosystems, and education. Yet we face growing challenges linked to water scarcity, water pollution, degraded water-related ecosystems, and cooperation over trans-boundary water basins. ​

When considering the Sustainable Development Goals, all 17 of them, water will play a critical role in achieving most of these goals. We believe that if we can support water leaders to at least achieve the clean water & sanitation goal, we would have made it that much easier to achieve the rest and that`s why we really care about water.

We have the technology and expertise to solve many of the water challenges but what we need now are more water leaders. Whether you are an installer or an engineer, a researcher, or a consultant, it`s going to take real people with real solutions to lead the way to a better water future for us all.

So, we invite you to learn more about what we do and how we address the water challenge and to become part of the growing network of water leaders.

Welcome to GWF Solutions!
