Water for All is the Atlas Copco Group’s main community engagement initiative. Through the dedicated and passionate work of volunteering employees, Water for All funds projects which empower people through access to clean drinking water, sanitation and hygiene. Since 1984 we have reached more than 2 million people worldwide.
Water for All is very close to the hearts of our employees. It was founded in Sweden in 1984 by Atlas Copco employees Peter Håkansson and Torgny Rogert and has continued to spread across the world ever since. At the center lies the strong belief that clean water is a human right and all voluntary employee donations to this cause are matched by twice the amount by the company. The received funds are used to support projects which give people in need access to clean drinking water and improved facilities for sanitation and hygiene.
An ambitious water well project in Malawi, sponsored by The Peter Wallenberg Water for All Foundation, has helped around 40 000 people get access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene.
