Metito is leading industry and governments through change, showing how circular water systems can resolve water shortages and other water-related challenges.

Nations, cities, and industries are increasingly turning to circular water systems and Metito is playing an active role, leading the industry by example, to make that vision a reality in key markets across the globe.

The funding from HSBC and the wider consortium will strengthen our ability to grow across our target markets and marks an important step in our green transition.
