UNESCO is an extremely important global organisation that seeks to build peace through international cooperation in Education, the Sciences and Culture. Its programmes contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals defined by the United Nations in 2015.
In a letter to Solar Water’s founder Malcolm Aw, UNESCO stated:
“We are pleased to express our support for solar water that developed a sustainable technology to produce fresh water using solar power energy on an industrial scale.
Solar Water Plc in its mission to develop this project in its pilot phase has decided to carry it out in the Canary Islands considering that it is the most suitable legacy for its geographical conditions and experience in the subject matter.
We wish to express our interest in the implementation of this pilot project in our city to evaluate solar water technology.
Given the great interest that this project and technology can have for us, this letter is showing our support and collaboration.”
We are very honoured to receive the backing of UNESCO and we look forward to sharing all the exciting developments from our pilot project with them.
