UT Permian Basin’s College of Engineering will host a Water Lecture Series on Friday, July 10 at 10:00 am. The event will be held virtually and is free for anyone to attend. The topic: ESG and Water Midstream will be presented by Gerardo Rivera.

While the Water Midstream sector is relatively new, ESG or sustainable investing has been around for decades. Formed in 2016, H2O was founded on the vision that water should be treated as a commodity and not a waste. H2O has been able to grow its business, while incorporating the important factors of ESG investing.
