Water is at the heart of all we do. Our products. Our company. Our customers’ lives and our own. Safe water is critical to daily life, and the fact that one-third of the world’s population lives without it is unacceptable. The ongoing global pandemic has revealed just how essential safe water is, not only for drinking, but for handwashing and healthy hygiene.
The numbers can be overwhelming: 2.1 billion people without safe water, 4.2 billion people without safe sanitation, and 3 billion people without access to basic handwashing at home. But change is happening. And at Kohler, we’re taking action.
Our flagship initiative, Safe Water for All, combines Kohler associate passion and our company’s strength and expertise to address this dire global need. Our product and engineering innovation paired with boots-on-the-ground humanitarian networks and the support of people like you has helped bring safe water to hundreds of thousands of individuals. Together, we are believing in better and working to keep safe water flowing.
