Milwaukee Water Summit IV - Part 9
July 19, 2012
Wisconsin's Role in Growing the Water Industry Rich Meeusen, Chief Executive Officer, Badger Meter Inc. WATER SUMMIT IV: BLUE FOOTPRINT http://www.milwaukee7-watercouncil.com/ Carbon? Blue? What does it all mean? In a blink of an eye, the United States has turned its attention to the carbon footprint--the measure of our individual and collective impact on the environment. From electricity to heating to transportation, we now have a number on how much carbon dioxide we produce. Should there not be parallel growth in something comparable for water, perhaps an effort called a Blue Footprint? The Milwaukee Water Council's Water Summit IV will be devoted to understanding and exploring the impact of the Blue Footprint on you as a busness leader, researcher, environmentalist, elected official, student and as a person.
