97.5% of the water on earth is salty. About one percent of that is brakish groundwater. 2.5% of the Earth's water is fresh . About two - thirds of that is frozen; the rest is liquid surface water and groundwater.

Water is Life. It's the briny broth of our origins, the pounding circulatory system of the world. We stake our civilizations on the coasts and mighty rivers. Our deepest dread is the treat of having too little - or too much.

The UN Global Compact

The UN Global Compact is a set of voluntary guidelines for companies. The idea originated in January 1999 at The World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Here, the then U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan proposed a means to harness the creative powers of the private sector to fulfill the wishes of underprivileged people and meet the needs of future generations. The UN Global Compact is neither a regulatory instrument nor a legally binding code of conduct. Rather, it is a concept that companies conduct in unison to fulfill their obligations as citizens of the world in order to offer solutions for the numerous problems linked to economic globalization. Each company participating in the UN Global Compact agrees to support and practice 10 principles that have been established worldwide relating to the following 4 areas: human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption. As of end December 2010, about 8,700 companies, labor unions and citizens groups have participated in the UN Global Compact. As a participant alongside these organizations, Mitsui will strive to fulfill its role as a global citizen and contribute to sustainable development worldwide.
