Every drop matters and has the power to make change happen. Dan Iversen talks about the importance of companies using their influence for both economic and social advancement, and how through Watermark, the social investment program of Xylem specializing in water resources, positive change has been brought about in the world.

In his job at Xylem, Dan Iversen has created an innovative program of social responsibility to increase awareness of water usage as a collective resource. Dan is the founder of Aqua Semper, a nonprofit organization that supports international companies to support social investment projects. The last five years of his life have been completely dedicated to solving water challenges, and to building towers and water intake systems in the Philippines and Cambodia.
