Our Mission is to bring local waters back to life and reducing the growing need for draining aquifers and transporting that water around the world as well as the related CO2 impact.
We are establishing a charitable foundation in Switzerland to help us achieve our goal: Swiss alpine water for everyone!
We are partnering with Swiss alpine cities, universities and scientists to help us deliver a new water technology which increases both the quality and taste of local waters to a level similar to pure Swiss alpine water, bringing with it a feeling of good health and of energy when consumed frequently. Good water is fundamental to good health.
We are dedicated to bring fresh healthy Swiss alpine water to everyone regardless of where they live and their economic or social circumstances.

Our Business Model is simple. We license our technology to existing water suppliers and water industry participants all over the world, helping make better and healthier water available for everyone regardless of where they live. We support our customers with the integration of our technology within their existing business operations and with the on-going operational and quality assurance of the water produced using our patented (pending) technology developed in Switzerland.

Hydroactive is partnering with some of Switzerland’s leading alpine cities and universities to help bring this new water replication technology to life. The University of Zurich and University of Luzern are supporting us with chemical analysis and certification of Hydroactive waters, guaranteeing the quality and standards of Swiss alpine water.
Recent estimates of yearly CO2 emissions relating to the transportation and consumption of bottled water globally have resulted in higher estimates than earlier provided by the industry.
The emissions problem from bottled water is even worse than we have imagined. With almost 500 Billion plastic (PET) bottles consumed in 2018 at an average size of 1 liter per bottle means that the CO2 footprint of water was between 67 Billion kilograms and 192 Billion kilograms of CO2 per year, or the equivalent of:
Producing fresh alpine waters locally reduces the amount of mineral and spring waters that need to be shipped around the globe. This reduction contributes immensely to the reduction of the assessed CO2 emissions from bottled water.
