Water Watch is a first-of-its kind tool which ranks over 200 industrial activities, within 13 industry sectors, according to their potential impact on water resources – both in terms of water quantity and water quality. This is the only analysis of this granularity that exists for assessing the relative impact of different industrial activities from companies’ direct operations, supply chain and product use on the world’s water resources.
Personal information will be used for the following purposes:
See a snapshot of the potential impact of your investment and/or lending portfolios on water resources. Identify and engage with risky sectors and businesses and identify the pressing issues facing the sectors you finance.
Use the tool to analyse and assess the potential impact of different parts of your business and value chains on water.
The tool is a great launching point for understanding water-related risks for particular industries and companies. In my opinion, it presents more comprehensive and industry-specific considerations related to water compared to more sustainability-focused guidance provided by other organisations.Hayley McCurdy, Research Analyst, Terra Alpha Investments
Water Watch - CDP’s Water Impact Index, shows that a wide variety of industrial activities have a critical impact on water resources globally. These are the activities that must be transformed, if we are to succeed in building resilience quickly. We hope that this tool will provide companies and investors with a clearer understanding of their impact on the worlds rivers, lakes aquifers and streams, and equip them with the information required to trigger the transformation needed.Cate Lamb, Global Director of Water Security at CDP
