By 2030, we will face a global deficit of 40% of water in an identical climate scenario – or even worse – than the one we are facing now. This trend is due to a combination of 3 factors – population growth & demographic change, urbanization, and climate change. To put this into context, the world’s total population is estimated to grow to 9.7 billion by 2050. At the same time, water consumption is increasing by 2.5% per year faster than the world’s population growth.
Together, we can be a part of the solution to end plastic waste. In 2019, our employees collected more than 175,000 pounds of waste from 175 locations worldwide with the help of more than 18,000 volunteers.

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the new partnership is Arrival’s unique manufacturing model.
Instead of relying on large, centralized factories, the company plans to establish a number of “micro-factories.”
