Let's make water a global priority

Water scarcity is one of the most impactful global risks. The United Nations estimates that water scarcity affects more than 40 percent of people around the world. If we don't act now, this figure is projected to increase with the progression of climate change. That is just one of the reasons why we are using our official sponsorship of the World Handball Championship to show our support for the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 6.
