Atlas Copco USA raised nearly $31,000 for its employee-led Water for All charity organization during a three-day annual conference.

The charity, which aims to provide people with clean drinking water, was launched in 1984 by Torgny Rogert and Peter Hakansson, two Atlas Copco employees. The duo founded the organization after witnessing how a draught created poor living conditions in Peru. According to Atlas Copco, in the past 30 years, the Water for All initiative has helped more than 1.5 billion people gain access to clean water and sanitation.

“What started as a one-time project to raise money to combat drought-stricken communities in Peru has grown into a worldwide initiative that allows our employees to act on their commitment to global sustainability,” says Jim Levitt, president of Atlas Copco North America. “We are proud to support organizations that raise awareness and take action around the issues of unsafe drinking water and global water scarcity.”
