Bringing water to Indian villages

Atlas Copco will bring clean drinking water to a rural area in India through our employee-driven Water for All organization. More than 20 villages with a total population of about 50 000 people will benefit.

In this specific case we are financing the installation of infrastructure and facilities for clean water, sanitation and hygiene in drought-prone areas in the Indian state of Maharashtra. Local residents will also get training in water conservation and management.

Drought has caused a lot of difficulties in this specific region of India, and we are happy to be able to contribute to a better life for many local residents. Atlas Copco India is based in Maharashtra, which makes this a great opportunity us employees to make a difference in the local community.

The project is financed by a donation from Atlas Copco to Water for All. The donation was made in honor of Sune Carlsson, who served as Chair of the Board of Atlas Copco AB between 2003 and 2014.

The project is done in cooperation with Indian non-governmental organization Sevavardhini. It started in November 2015 and will be completed by the end of 2016.
