Water Stewardship and Efficiency: Business Leadership and Action

Hosted during World Water Week, this webinar will offer up an afternoon of live, interactive webinar presentations and discussions – all dedicated to accelerating water stewardship and reducing water-related business risk.

The water crisis has been ranked as the third most important risk to global growth in the next 10 years, according to the World Economic Forum. With water scarcity rapidly rising up the public and political agenda, businesses will need to place it at the heart of their sustainability strategies if they are to reduce environmental impact and increase resilience.  

 This webinar will bring together sustainability leaders and water management experts to share tools, insights and practices that accelerate innovation and drive global water security. 

 Registrants for this webinar will get access to both sessions on the day. Full details of the sessions are as follows:
