How Newmont Uses Aqueduct

Newmont 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 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's operational risks, and broaden their focus to incorporate watershed-level context and their potential impacts to business. Through this work with Aqueduct, Newmont now has a better understanding of the role they can play in water stewardship through a broad range of partnership and project opportunities.
