The Future of City, Industrial and Marine Environment Markets
Rapid population growth coupled with unsustainable industrial growth continues to result in the depletion of limited freshwater and natural resources and an increase in waste and pollution. The intrinsic link between Water-Food-Resource-Energy and the associated challenges for customers is leading to collaboration across key industry verticals with a focus on developing innovative technology and services backed by strong business models driven by digital transformation. The Sustainability Program provides Thought Leadership and Advisory Services across the City and Industrial landscape with a particular focus on water & waste management analyzing key trends of Water Stress, Smart Cities, Circular Economy, Risk & Resilience, De-centralisation, De-carbonisation and Internet of Things.
The key focus areas of research and analysis are:
Sustainability Capacity Building Workshops, Material Supply Chain Analysis, Responsible Sourcing, Sustainable Reporting, Monitoring and Evaluation of CSR projects, Environmental Social Governance(ESG) – EHS Services
Industrial Water Services
Water intensive and water critical industrial sectors such as power generation, oil& gas, mining, food & beverage, pulp & paper, petrochemicals, textiles and tanneries, pharmaceuticals, semi-conductors.
Circular Economy of Waste to Value
Municipal Waste, Plastics Recycling, Hazardous, Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment (WEEE), Construction & Demolition (C&D), Waste to Energy Plants, EV Battery Reuse and Recycling.
Smart Water Utilities
Drinking Water and Wastewater Treatment, Asset Management, Smart Water Metering, NRW /Leakage Management, Sludge Treatment and Resource Recovery, Treatment Chemicals, Pipeline Network Rehabilitation and Management.
EIoT (Environment Internet of Things)

Corporations and governments are increasing their awareness and activity around mitigating environmental issues, trying to find ways to ensure clean air and water while still growing businesses and economies. New technical solutions can help reduce usage and wastes through smart Water and smart metering for example, which will extend into pumping stations, municipal water, and wastewater treatment infrastructure. Recycling and resource recovery opportunities will be central across several segments as well to help create a stronger business case beyond regulatory compliance. And new opportunities around growing freshwater demand and concerns will help drive markets such as desalination and fracking water remediation.
Frost & Sullivan’s Environment and Water program area includes environmental and water technologies & services, both municipal and industrial, as well as waste to energy and recycling.
