Sustainability is one of the pillars of the 8th World Water Forum.
With that in mind, the eight edition of the event will be totally paperless. 
Booklets, programming, documents and all informational material that the participant needs will be available in electronic format on the official app, which will soon be available for download through the App Store and Google Play Store.
Through this initiative, more than 500,000 pages will be saved, which creates less impact on the environment.
Each Eucalyptus tree yields from 20  to 24 thousand sheets of common white A4 paper, used at home and in offices. 
However, each tree takes about 15 years to be ready for harvest.  In addition to that, the consumption of water, which is around 10 litres for each A4 sheet of paper, is taken into account. 
Saving water today  to ensure this resource is available in the future and respecting the environment are ideas in tune with the objectives of the World Water Forum.
