GLRPPR Sector Resource: A Drought in your Portfolio: Are Global Companies Responding to Water Scarcity?

Title:
A Drought in your Portfolio: Are Global Companies Responding to Water Scarcity?

Abstract:
"This report explores corporate responses to water scarcity around the world. Our research identifies a significant proportion of global companies as being at risk from water scarcity and highlights the short time frame within which water scarcity will begin to have detrimental financial impacts for companies and their investors. Despite this, our research shows only a handful of the global 2000 companies we analysed have the policies, management systems and reporting mechanisms they need to adequately address the risks they face from water scarcity. We conclude that the vast majority of companies and investors remain unaware of both current and future water risks and are therefore failing to protect company value." [PDF, 8 p.]
