World Water Week: Building the business case for water management

CDP has revealed that taking action on water security within the private sector could unlock potential commercial opportunities worth $2.3trn. However, many firms aren’t yet realising the opportunity to act on water and the benefits it can bring.

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.  So, just how can businesses build the business case for water stewardship and security?

Hosted as a prelude to World Water Week, this masterclass will provide attendees with advice and insight from experts in the water stewardship to outline why this area is so important and what steps can be introduced that accelerate innovation and drive global water security.

Discussion Points:

  • Water security: Why should it be a priority for businesses?

  • The actions organisations can take to drive positive change on water security
