While there isn’t a global water shortage, there is a global water crisis.
Even if you aren’t operating in a water stressed part of the world, if you are a global organisation, it is quite likely that parts of your global supply chain are.
Water is becoming an increasingly scarce resource – increasing demands driven by industry, population growth, rising demand for energy and changes in the global population’s diet.
Many organisations are already focusing on water as part of their environmental sustainability goals. For many, success will rely on an organisation wide shift in mindset from consuming water to reusing water.
We are supporting some of the most forward thinking global businesses to enable business wide learning and conversations about what water sustainability really means for their operations, and the way they do business. From colleagues in product design, to engineering, to manufacturing, to procurement, to finance and legal. Every part of the business has a part to play in developing a truly environmentally sustainable business.
The greatest risks and the greatest opportunities for improving water stewardship may lie beyond an organisation’s own boundaries. Collaboration with partners, customers and supply will be key to manage water sustainably for the long term.
