Sydney Water is being honored for its Every Drop Counts Business program. The Stockholm International Water Institute says the program demonstrates how the utility is working with business, industry and government to save more than 20 million liters of water every day.
The prize will be awarded in connection with the annual World Water Week here in Stockholm in August.
Meanwhile, Swedish mathematician Lennart Carleson received the Norwegian Abel Prize Tuesday, for proving a 19th century theorem for analyzing sound waves and popularizing mathematics. The 78 year old Swede was presented the prize, which includes a one million dollar cash award, by Norway’s Queen Sonja in Oslo.
