Water­ Management

Identifying risks and opportunities based on a water footprint for different reporting formats

Water is essential to all life and economic activity. While access to clean water has been recognized as a human right since 2010, water-related crises are time and again identified as one of the top 5 risks to the global economy by the World Economic Forum. The sustainable use of water as a resource and the proactive management of water risks are important components of sustainability management.
