What are your ideas for preserving our water resources?

To mark its 90th anniversary, from June 23rd to September 3rd, 2023, Saur is launching a public consultation on the preservation of water resources, in partnership with Make.org

Saur and Make.org announce the launch of a major public consultation on the preservation of water resources between June 23rd and September 3rd, 2023. This national consultation aims to co-construct solutions to improve the preservation of water resources.

The impacts of climate change make access to high-quality water a key challenge. Drought and its consequences are a tangible and widespread reality in France and one that will profoundly change our habits.

Saur therefore wants to reaffirm its commitment to preserving the planet’s most precious resource for the benefit of current and future generations. To optimize the way it supports the sustainable transformation of methods of water production, management and consumption, Saur is offering French consumers the opportunity to help identify these solutions through a major national consultation conducted via the Make.org platform.

Because every drop counts, and so does every idea, the Saur group hopes that this will identify solutions designed by and for the French population, in order to initiate an effective and fair water transition.

Patrick Blethon, Executive Chairman of the Saur Group, says: “At Saur, we firmly believe in the power of co-constructing solutions, to ensure that everyone can have access to the most precious resource on the planet, despite the impacts of climate change. The major public consultation being conducted with Make.org is a perfect illustration of this. Together, by collecting everyone’s ideas, we will be able to successfully achieve the water transition for our regions.”

Axel Dauchez, Chairman of Make.org, says: For several years, our public consultations have identified concerns over the scarcity of water resources and how they are used. As a key player in this field, Saur has addressed this concern by working with Make.org to organize a vast national debate. This innovative approach makes actively involves the general public in the preservation of our water resources. It is also an opportunity for Saur to coordinate and encourage the development of appropriate solutions for current and future generations.”
