On Slide 5, you can see Itron's vision. The way our world manage energy and water will shape this century. This is a bold statement, but this is one that we believe in. Our planet's energy and water resource are vitally important to life, and they are currently being strained.Turning to Slide 6. Water is essential to a sustainable future everywhere and for everything. No plant, no animal, no man can live without water. Water is at the heart of sustainability. To secure the environment, availability and quality standard for water is critical. Social and economic development, for basic human needs, fair and inefficient allocation and use of water is necessary. The United Nations Environment Program has placed water as one of the top millennium development goals, by 2015 to reduce by 50% the number of people worldwide who do not have yet access to safe drinking water. This would be adding 3 billion people to the water supply, 4 billion to sanitation. Our mission at Itron is to help the world's utilities and governments to achieve these essential goals. And this will expand what and how much business Itron will do in this industry.
