On the 12th and 13th of March, the MBB took part in an Open Weekend at the Water Services Corporation. During the event, the MBB exhibited its various water conservation initiatives through the EU LIFE+ Investing in Water project and its recent report – The potential for energy and water savings within the EU through flow rate regulation and greywater treatment.
As part of World Water Day 2016, the MBB was invited to give a talk on water conservation at the Intercontinental Hotel in St Julians at an event organised by the HSBC Water Programme – Catch the Drop Campaign. Teachers and students representing more than 20 schools attended the event and participated in a quiz relating to water-related issues. Following the presentation of certificates to the young participants, a closing speech was delivered by HSBC CEO Andrew Beane.
MBB representatives Geoffrey Saliba and Matteo Privitelli have also, on a number of occasions, assisted HSBC by giving talks and presentations to schoolchildren on the subject, all of which were very well-received.
