About eWater Systems Pty Ltd

eWater is the market leader in game changing, evidence based, sustainable water splitting technology for food safety and infection control in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific.

At the heart of the company is a disruptive technology already replacing millions of litres of packaged chemicals each year in Australia, significantly reducing company carbon and chemical footprints.

eWater solutions replace traditional packaged sanitising and cleaning chemicals with a safer, more cost effective alternative, removing the risks associated with handling wasteful, toxic packaged chemicals.

Since its formation in 2007, eWater Systems has established a national blue chip client list including over 30 leading public and private hospitals, around 100 aged care facilities, childcare centres, defence bases, schools, stadiums, convention centres, food production facilities and many of the most respected restaurant groups in Australia.

Becoming a B Corp seemed like a logical step given we were founded on the belief that business could be a force for good and not just about making money.

We are excited about being associated with other enterprises taking this same stance and the potential that together we can shift from a purely capital driven economy to one that values our natural environment, human health and wellbeing.

The Change We Seek®

eWater Systems are committed to making a positive impact on our increasingly degraded environment by providing safe, sustainable, and economical alternatives to many hazardous, wasteful, expensive and ultimately unsustainable chemical products currently polluting waterways, buildings and people.

People in the modern world are exposed to thousands of chemicals everyday, particularly via food production. eWater Systems proudly supports any action that makes available sustainable alternatives to toxic chemicals for this and future generations.

The sustainability movement is at the early stages of the possibilities of green chemistry to reduce chemical footprints. More and more people are saying that this movement could be as far reaching as climate change. First came carbon footprint awareness and measurement now the drive is to measure chemical footprints, the obvious next step in sustainable business practice.

“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident.” Arthur Schopenhauer
