Water scarcity and
its impact on your business
Water scarcity is becoming one of the most critical risks threatening social and economic development throughout the world. Access to appropriate quality and quantities of water can either impede or enable economic growth and affects the supply chain of most companies, not only those for which water is a primary input or production requirement.
The relative scarcity of water, quality concerns and the potential impact of climate change with the expectation of frequent extreme weather events, all create an uncertain environment. Therefore, it is essential to identify and evaluate water-related risks that could have an impact on consumers, businesses and government.
This discussion event considers what the board should be considering and what leaders are considering to counteract and prepare for the impact of water scarcity on their company.
