How CDP Uses Aqueduct

For years, CDP has used the open source data available in Aqueduct and WRI’s Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas to map corporate risk exposure and mobilize the world’s largest corporations and financial institutions to tackle the global water crisis on an industrial scale. Financial institutions, when armed with the right data, are uniquely equipped to help advance water security. Aqueduct has allowed companies to provide comprehensive and comparable information on water risks to financiers via CDP, thereby informing better decision-making and identifying opportunities to achieve a water secure future.
