Introducing the South African Water Stewardship Council Trust Dr. Anthony Turton Marguerite Bond-Smith Stephen Duffett, Trustees
Why a Trust? Highest level of protection for donors and sponsors. Tax exemption status for donors and sponsors. Fiduciary responsibility of Trustees. Capable of managing endowments and thus sustainable over time. Endures beyond the life of those who created it. Disadvantage is that it is slow to build up critical mass. Advantage is that it is very durable once established.
What We Believe In Vision: To foster inter-generational equity at corporate and individual level through behavioural change in the custodianship of water. Mission: Incentivizing behavioural change from consumption to the custodianship of water through structured stewardship programs that are based on a set of clearly articulated core values. Core Values: Protection; Responsibility; Accountability; Inter-generational; Reporting; Benchmarking; Trust; Transparency; Custodianship; Education
How We are Structured Ten Focused Stewardship Programs. Grant funding (endowment) opportunities for corporations wishing to take a leadership role in any given program. Project funding opportunities for any entity wishing to support a specific project. Recognition that each program will represent a cluster of specific issues in which the interests of specific stakeholders will be different.
Stewardship Programs Mining, Metals and Energy. Insurance, Banking, Finance and Investment. Sport, Recreation and Tourism. Built Environment. Agriculture, Food and Beverages. Education and Behavioural Change. Celebrities. Health, Wellbeing and Spirituality. Retail, Fashion and Lifestyle. Government.
Rollout Program Establishment of Corporate Identity (underway – Ogilvy Earth as lead with JoJo Tanks as sponsor). Formal linkage to likeminded entities both global and local. Alliance for Water Stewardship. Roadshow to selected corporations to negotiate grant funding for leadership role in Stewardship Programs. Public call for potential projects for consideration.
