"Our innovative team develops partnerships and delivers reliable, long-term water reuse and treatment solutions for communities, governments and industry that help our customers maximize their water and energy resources."

The awards program noted that "GE Water has transformed itself ... into the most formidable industrial water company in the world, positioned at the center of the water-energy nexus. ... GE Water has consistently placed itself at the cutting edge of innovation right across its portfolio. No one else proved so adept at turning challenges of the water-energy nexus into opportunities for corporate water users, utilities and the environment."
