Using Smart Irrigation to Achieve Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) Goals

In today’s world, managing irrigation on large sites and campuses is an enormous challenge with restrictive water windows when relying on outdated computer technology. It’s a constant struggle to maximize each site’s unique watering requirements and stay compliant with watering restrictions. Sometimes this can result in inefficient watering schedules and unhealthy landscapes.

But today’s groundbreaking irrigation technology makes smart irrigation even smarter. You can now manage restrictive water windows, deliver water where it’s needed when it’s needed, and maximize flow across an entire site– all from the Cloud.

From residential landscaping to agricultural fields and sprawling campuses, irrigating in sustainable ways will conserve water today and still satisfy plant health without compromising life-sustaining needs of the future. Water conservation is not just a trendy catch phrase for the times we live in. Water sources are finite, and becoming more scarce and polluted than ever before as we struggle to monitor water use and control hazardous waste runoff into our watersheds and water sources.

In fact, water pollution and scarcity poses such an economic threat around the world that companies and institutional investors have now adopted a group of standards and criteria used by socially conscious investors to screen investments. It’s called ESG—Environmental, Social and Governance. And according to a recent investment survey, water ranks among the top three environmental, social and governance (ESG) concerns around the globe.

Why is Smart Irrigation crucial for achieving ESG goals? Because Smart Irrigation practices won’t compromise future generations. And because in today’s environmentally conscious world, investors and stakeholders consider very seriously how companies are operating as stewards of nature.
