Our expertise

Climate change, with the related extremes of water scarcity and water abundance, has drawn attention to the importance of sustainable, efficient and measurable water systems on a global basis. Historically, water has been mispriced and widely perceived as free. Going forward, sustainable water businesses must reassess how they operate and utilize technology to drive efficiency in the water chain.

The Nomura Greentech team brings a growth and tech-enabled lense to our coverage of the Water sector, with the understanding that innovative platforms are necessary to succeed in this complex, global sector.
