CDP global water report 2013
The CDP Global Water Report 2013 establishes that a misguided approach to water-related risk management has become business as usual at the world’s largest global companies. Corporate focus is too often directed at reducing water use, which is an inadequate response to increasingly immediate substantive water risks, threatening shareholder value. Water stewardship is the solution to achieving water security, one of the most pressing issues facing the world today. A significant step change, however, is required if stewardship is to be achieved. CDP is calling on investors to take a leading role in guiding companies on this issue.
