Returning after 2 years, the 2022 Global Water Summit, organised by Global Water Intelligence (GWI), is now set to take place in Madrid on 16-18 May 2022. The conference will unpack the developments, issues, and opportunities across the global water sector within the theme “Water Positive Zero-Carbon”.


The 2022 Global Water Summit will explore the ways that climate change is changing water. The synergies between emissions and water security, together with the global political commitment for climate action create the potential for transformational change.

The conference will assemble business leaders and decision makers from across the international water sector to discuss the major trends. The three-day agenda will include a variety of sessions within 6 strands, including Defining Water Positive, The Smart Way to Zero, The SDG 6 Challenge (a 2-part workshop), Accelerating New Models for Desal, Supersizing Potable Water Reuse, Next Generation Water Technologies for Industry, Leading the Race to Zero, and much more.

The 2022 Global Water Summit is the first opportunity in over 2 years for many in the global water industry to come together. It is an essential opportunity to disseminate information and drive the global conversation around water-positivity and the zero-carbon movement, while giving a complete business-focused global overview to the leaders of the water sector.

Awareness of these trends, and many more that will impact business strategy in the coming years, contributed to the selection of the Global Water Summit 2022 theme of Water-Positive Zero Carbon. The theme was also informed by a GWI pathfinder workshop held in 2021 focused on ‘Water Without Carbon’.

The Global Water Summit seeks each year to bring attending delegates new speakers, new business partners, new ideas and new opportunities. Attracting more top water leaders and business executives than any other water event, the Summit has become vital in shaping the future direction of the water sector and driving business opportunities.

2022 also marks the fifth anniversary of the Leading Utilities of the World foundation. LUOW members from around the world will have the opportunity to take part in a number of utility focused agenda sessions, as well as being specially recognised in a ‘Recognising Innovation’ session, as well as inaugurating new members to the network, which recognises the gold standard of utility performance.

In recognition of the environmental impact of international conferences, the Global Water Summit has also announced a carbon pledge. Investing to reduce water industry carbon emissions by 500tCO2e, more than double that generated by travel to the event, this carbon offset pledge demonstrates the commitment to the objectives of the conference.

The Global Water Summit is the premier knowledge platform and networking event for C-suite executives in the global water industry.
