50L Home is a global action-oriented platform that addresses two of our most pressing global challenges: water security and climate change. We strive to re-invent the future of water and change the narrative on domestic water consumption. To achieve this, we work alongside global industry leaders and public and civil society institutions. Our primary objective is to create sustainable solutions that will solve the urban water crisis and create financially viable opportunities for our communities. Our unique initiatives address the systemic risks associated with water and climate change, and how they proliferate due to changing lifestyle patterns, increased industrialization, population growth, and rapid urbanization. The approach is two-fold, we encourage water and energy efficiency in households, and generate awareness that leads to better lifestyle choices for sustainable water use. Both improve the livelihoods of people.
Why action is needed
Our added value
Advancing solutions to address the three R’s to water efficiency: reduce, recycle, and reuse water in homes, and within the wider urban water system.
Collaborating on pilot projects in water-stressed cities and mobilizing local actors to learn and inform the path to global scale and replication.
Knowledge is power, which is why reshaping peoples’ relationship with water will help inspire daily behavioral lifestyle changes that can bring effective change to our water crisis.
Policy and regulation
Advancing policy, regulatory and industry framework changes to transform home use and water supply or treatment.
