Having an impact
in the world
Nowa is helping preserve the planet by eliminating water-related damage.
We’re joining the roster of the world’s most innovative companies in our efforts to protect our natural and human resources.
There’s just one Earth.
Nowa’s purpose is to protect property owners and tenants from the number one cause of insurance claims in Canada. But underlying this primary mission is a much greater quest: helping preserve our planet’s resources.
Every year, water damage is the number one expense for Canadian insurers. It also wastes vast quantities of clean water and creates construction waste. Our goal is to reduce the carbon footprint of the entire chain of impacts caused by water damage.
Our positive impact
With our preventive solutions, we help ease the strain on our planet. Here’s Nowa’s positive impact each year:
Up to $1 billion in potential claims, generating a proportional reduction of natural resources used for reconstruction
350,000 metric tons
Up to 350,000 metric tons of garbage kept out of landfills
30 million liters
Up to 30 million liters of clean water saved—the equivalent of 100 above-ground pools
Our value is measured by the positive impact we have on people.
We want our company to be a good corporate citizen and have a positive impact on our partners and employees. Our commitment to the wider community is just another step in that direction. Nowa has supported several nonprofit foundations and organizations for a number of years, and works to promote health and physical fitness among teens and young adults.
