risk management on global water issues
Risk management on global water issues…
  • Requires an understanding of a company’s water needs in relation to local externalities (e.g. water availability, quality, stress, access to improved water sources and sanitation…)
  • In your operations, supply chain and ultimately customers

To manage your water globally, you need to understand the water situation locally

do you know
Do you know…
  • How many of your employees live in countries that lack access to improved water and sanitation?
  • How many of your sites are in extremely water-scarce areas? Which sites are at greatest risk? How that will change in the future?
  • How many of your suppliers are in water scarce areas now and will be in 2025?
since launch in 2007 the gwt has
Since launch in 2007, the GWT has…
  • Provided an automatic link between a company’s global operations and key external water data
  • Allowed companies to establish relative water risks in their portfolios to prioritize action
  • Enabled creation of GRI Indicators, inventories, risk and performance metrics and geographic mapping
  • Ensured a standard approach and common set of data for global assessments
since launch in 2007 the gwt has1
Since launch in 2007, the GWT has…
  • Been downloaded over 10’000 times
  • Been used by 300+ companies (estimate)
  • Been increasingly recognized as the best available approach for companies to assess corporate water-related risks, improve decision-making, shape water management plans, and strengthen communications with internal and external stakeholders on water issues.
  • been endorsed by the GRI
  • applauded by the Carbon Disclosure Project

  • Clarify water terms & calculations for accurate reporting of water-related metrics
  • Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) was used as basis for definitions for companies that wish to report in accordance with GRI (GRI has endorsed the tool)
  • E.g. “Total freshwater consumed by facility” is difference between intake and discharge, and is quantity of freshwater:
  • Evaporated for cooling purposes
  • Evaporated from water storage facilities
  • Lost via transmission
  • Used directly in the organization’s products
  • Onsite uses, including irrigation and road maintenance
