With increasing water scarcity around the world, Electrolux has joined the 50L Home Coalition as part of its work to develop appliances that help consumers to reduce their water use.
Water scarcity levels are rising – 14 out of 20 of the world’s largest cities are already experiencing inadequate supplies and two-thirds of the world’s population are expected to live in water-stressed areas by 2025. Still, the average daily water consumption per person is up to 500 liters in some developed countries and approximately 16% of energy consumption in the home is related to water usage.
Introducing the 50L Home Coalition
These key facts have been collated by the 50L Home Coalition, a multi-stakeholder network launched in 2020 involving Proctor & Gamble, Electrolux and the World Economic Forum, among others.
“We’re on a quest to offer the most water and energy-efficient home appliances and empower consumers to live more sustainable lives, so it’s a natural fit to be part of the 50L Home Coalition,” says Jonas Samuelson, Electrolux CEO.
The aim is to reimagine our relationship with water to inspire and enable lifestyle changes while advancing solutions to address water efficiency, reuse and – in certain cases – removal in the home. Ultimately, partners have the vision to make 50 liters of daily water use per person an aspiration for all.
“We’ll strengthen our innovation strategy to design solutions that will lead in water and energy efficiency, with the help coalition partners, and ultimately develop appliances that make the 50-liter home of the future a reality,” concludes Elisa Stabon, Care Experience Development Manager.
