How Newmont Uses Aqueduct

Newmont Goldcorp has used WRI’s Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas to evaluate and report on water risk (physical, reputational and regulatory) for a number of years. Newmont Goldcorp recently collaborated with the Aqueduct team to use the tool for a more detailed assessment of these risks at a watershed level, which supported internal watershed-based target setting workshops. These assessments support mitigation of Newmont Goldcorp’s operational risks, and broaden their focus to incorporate watershed level context and their potential impacts to business. Through this work with Aqueduct, Newmont Goldcorp now has a better understanding of the role they can play in water stewardship through a broad range of partnership and project opportunities.
