Pacific Institute and BSR Release Water Trends Report

September 19, 2007 - A new trends report focuses on corporate water strategy. "At the Crest of a Wave: A Proactive Approach to Corporate Water Strategy" explains the drivers behind water trends, their implications for business and, most importantly, how to prepare for them.

"It is clear that water trends pose a threat to business," said Emma Stewart, Ph.D., BSR Director of Environmental Strategy. "In the next two to five years, companies will need to adapt to availability, quality and access concerns. Proactive corporate action that dramatically overhauls how companies use and invest in water supplies will be crucial for mitigating risks, gaining regulatory and community goodwill, and improving reputation," she said.

A global crisis in access to clean water is emerging as freshwater resources become scarcer or polluted, and businesses will increasingly find themselves grappling with water constraints in various sourcing, production and retail sites around the world. According to the United Nations, if present consumption patterns continue, two-thirds of the world’s population will live in water-stressed conditions by the year 2025. In fact, today more than 1 billion people around the world lack reliable access to clean drinking water and 2.5 billion people lack adequate sanitation.

"Today’s corporations need a water strategy that goes well beyond tracking inputs and outputs," said Jason Morrison, Program Director for the Pacific Institute. "'At the Crest of a Wave' can help corporations design and implement a comprehensive approach to managing water risks and opportunities."

"At the Crest of a Wave" steers readers through developing and implementing a two-phase corporate water strategy, and includes examples from companies such as Unilever, Nestlé, Toyota, General Motors, Anheuser-Busch, GE, Proctor & Gamble and more.
