GLRPPR Sector Resource: Water Footprinting: Identifying and Addressing Water Risks in he Value Chain

Title:
Water Footprinting: Identifying and Addressing Water Risks in he Value Chain

Abstract:
This report provides a detailed insight into the learning of WWF and SABMiller, who worked together with consultancy URS Corporation to undertake water footprints of the beer value chain in South Africa and the Czech Republic. It discusses what the water footprint results in both countries mean for SABMiller's businesses and their action plans in response to the findings. This study looks beyond the basic water footprint numbers and considers where the resource is used and the context of its use – in particular by considering water use for different agricultural crops in the context of specific water catchments.
