How the Alliance for Water Stewardship Uses Aqueduct

Good water stewardship is a journey. The Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) Standard serves as a framework to guide companies and sites along the journey towards good water stewardship. An important component of good water stewardship and the AWS Standard is understanding context and water risk. The WRI Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas is a great tool for companies that are looking for ways to identify high-risk sites amongst their portfolio of sites to identify the places to implement the AWS Standard and undertake water stewardship efforts. It also helps sites that are implementing the AWS Standard to identify their water risk and contextualize their water stewardship objectives.
