Find green business solutions
california precipitation landscape and solar solutions GEMI has developed the online Water Sustainability Tool to assist individual companies and other organizations to better understand what emerging water issues might mean for them, given their operations, needs, and circumstances. The tool is designed to help individual companies build a business water strategy. The tool encourages businesses to:
  • Conduct a systematic assessment of their relationship to water
  • Identify specific opportunities and risks associated with this relationship
  • Assess the business case for action
  • Tailor a water strategy that addresses specific needs and circumstances of the organization
  • Ensure that water-related opportunities and risks are tracked and managed effectively into the future using a continual improvement framework

The Tool Roadmap

GEMI’s Water Sustainability Tool contains five core analytical stages, or modules. These include:

Module 1: Water Use, Impact, and Source Assessment
Module 2: Business Risk Assessment
Module 3: Business Opportunity Assessment
Module 4: Strategic Direction and Goal Setting
Module 5: Strategy Development and Implementation

The value chain approach is designed to help companies identify and assess water uses and impacts in places where they might not be immediately obvious. For example, water-related risks and opportunities may appear in raw material or production stages, linked with key process inputs and suppliers, or in later stages, associated with product use or final disposition. Companies may find that they rely upon or impact water in unexpected ways.
