Praising IDE’s “faster, more cost-efficient and environment-friendly desalination process”, Fortune hails the “engineering alchemy” that has allowed the company to rise to no. 2 in the Change The World list.
This list recognizes companies that have had a positive social impact through activities that are part of their core business strategy, rated by level of innovation, measurable social impact and business results.
IDE achieved the number 2 spot (behind GlaxoSmithKline) due to its pioneering work in the desalination industry, where it is an undisputed technological leader. Fortune were especially impressed by IDE’s global scale (plants in over 40 countries, including the new Carlsbad plant in California which is a game changer for desalination in the US) and innovations that include a wide range of energy- and cost-efficient desalination processes.
