The Challenge
Veolia Water - in consultation with industry
colleagues, scientists, academia and environmental
professionals at leading NGOs - collected research
and statistics on water use in the world to underscore
the importance of water as a vital resource. They
wanted a partner to craft all of the available data into
a compelling and immersive online experience telling
the important story of how water is as essential to
our economic and social growth as it is to ensuring
healthy ecosystems and our natural environment.

Our Solution
Edelman Digital created a website allowing visitors
to manipulate the data at hand to gain a greater
understanding of each factor effecting water
resources globally and locally.
This “Growing Blue Tool” is a one-of-a-kind analysis
of the current state worldwide that translates complex
data gathered from a number of resources into a
series of animated global maps. Facts and figures
accompanying each map provides analysis and rank
the region’s water stress; municipal, agricultural and
industrial water use; and condition of the current
water delivery infrastructure.
This tool is supported by facts, data and case studies
ultimately creating a resource for credible, accurate
information on water, aimed at increasing global
awareness of our water challenges and the need for
thoughtful solutions.
