Xylem honored by the American India Foundation


Xylem has been recognized by the American India Foundation (AIF) for its long-term commitment to India’s growing economy and to helping provide greater access to water for the country’s most vulnerable communities. Xylem President and Chief Executive Officer Patrick Decker was a featured speaker at the AIF Annual Atlanta Gala at the Atlanta Athletic Club.

India is one of the world’s most water-stressed countries, with less than five percent of the world’s fresh water resources. A recent UN Water Resources Group report noted that more than 100 million people in India live in areas of poor water quality. However, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi has placed clean water at the “heart of good governance.”

“We are honored and humbled by this recognition from the AIF,” said Decker. “We understand the complexity and urgency of India’s unique water challenges and we are committed to working with the government and our customers to develop sustainable solutions that will help fuel the growth of India’s economy. At the same time, we have a responsibility to help expand access to vital clean water resources. That’s why we created Xylem Watermark, our corporate citizenship program, to help bring water and sanitation access and education to communities in need in India and around the world.”

The American India Foundation is committed to disrupting poverty, catalyzing social and economic change in India, and building a lasting bridge between the United States and India through high-impact interventions in education, livelihoods, public health, and leadership development.
