Water — a vital resource for all life on Earth — is under extreme threat today from a growing population, increasing demands of agriculture and industry and the worsening impacts of climate change. Supplying water to people and protecting freshwater resources and ecosystems — such as wetlands, rivers, mangroves and aquifers — has become a critical priority around the world.
The Routes & Roots®: Enterprise Healthy Rivers Project was established in 2017 to help preserve this vital resource for current and future generations. To date, Enterprise Holdings has pledged a total of $60 million to The Nature Conservancy (TNC). The funds are helping TNC and partners protect and restore freshwater ecosystems, implement new water management approaches, preserve watershed habitat and keep pollution out of rivers in North America, Europe and around the world.
