Water: The forgotten impact? Understanding water use, measurement and management

Outline

Considering and mitigating the water footprint of your business can reduce physical, reputational, regulatory and financial risks. And those companies that proactively respond to the challenge of global freshwater scarcity can turn that risk into an opportunity.

Cranfield University’s reader in water management, Tim Hess will be joined by Sophie Flak, VP sustainable development at Accor and Alan Hayes, Senior Sustainability Analyst at IGD - (Institute of Grocery and Distribution) to explore a number of themes, including:

- Using your water footprint activity to drive your overall sustainability strategy
- What can we learn from carbon footprinting activity
- Developing effective water use minimisation strategies,
- Managing water as a valuable asset and mitigating the effects of water shortages worldwide
- The need for global standards
- Taking it to the next level: supply-chain water footprinting
