Members of the Swedish Water & Wastewater Association supply drinking water and receive wastewater from more than 8 million people. They are therefore Sweden’s most important food producers and environmental conservation companies. The Association strives to clarify and strengthen the role of water and wastewater operations in society. We organise collaborations and disseminate knowledge in technical, administrative and economic issues, and we support technical progress and the development of new water and wastewater solutions based, for example, on an eco-cycle approach and strict requirements on protecting health and the environment.

Every year Föreningen Vatten awards several environmental prizes, including the high-profile VATTEN prize, to the deserving heroes of water conservation.
