Corporate Water Stewardship: Global Perspectives Across the Maturity Curve
One quarter of the world's population faces extremely high water stress. The World Economic Forum consistently ranks water crises as a top-five risk in terms of the impact. Climate change makes water supply uncertain, resulting in increases in droughts and floods. Without action, companies will feel the pain of growing global water risks.
Strategies like setting contextual water targets, valuing the benefits of water stewardship activities, and assessing risks using tools such as Aqueduct all help companies measure, manage and mitigate water challenges. Every company must start somewhere on their water stewardship journey.
This webinar will highlight three companies at different places on the "water stewardship maturity curve" — the trajectory companies can take from measuring water challenges to spurring collective actions in their basins of operations.
Professionals from Ansell, International Paper, and Procter&Gamble will give insight into their history of water stewardship, current strategy, and where the future will take them. Participants will leave this webinar with the confidence to begin, or continue, their journey of water action — whether at a company, in local or national government, or at a nonprofit or development agency.
