Unveiled at the Globe Forum Tour conference at Helsingborg, Sweden, the logo is intended for universal open use to render the acquatrail more readily understood.

It is added to a series of initiatives by the foundation to reduce all types of water pollution at source.

The acquatrail logo was developed in an open source online competition overseen by strategy and branding firm INCIDE. The winning version comes from collaboration between Swedish designer Alexander Engzell and Italian designer Elisabetta Severini.

Says Susannah Stewart of The Going Blue Foundation: "The acquatrail's adoption as a measure and monetisation of water pollution at source is becoming widespread and we believe that this logo will accelerate that process. Alongside energy and food, clean healthy water is THE 21st century issue, and the faster we come to grips with this the better".
