With 20 years’ experience and a global network of project partners, we work with our clients to deliver high quality solutions that ensure immediate, positive impact on the world’s natural capital.
Meet your commitments to water stewardship through projects which deliver verified results and impact in water-stressed areas. Whether it is to improve resilience in your supply chain, deliver a broad environmental programme, or enhance your reputation in consumer markets, water stewardship projects use results-based finance to enable you to immediately meet your targets and deliver positive impact to communities.
Projects include water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), water efficient agriculture, provision of clean drinking water, and solar water heating. In addition to water stewardship, the projects deliver positive impacts to health and well-being, food and financial security, and women’s empowerment.
Project results are monitored and independently verified through the Gold Standard or the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), offering third-party assured impact figures to meet your water stewardship commitments and demonstrate industry leadership.
The World Economic Forum’s 2016 global risk report ranked water crises as one of the top societal risks to the global economy ahead of fiscal crises, cyber-attacks and even food crises. The first step toward addressing this risk is to understand your water footprint.
A water footprint is the volume of freshwater used to produce a product or operate a business, measured over the full supply chain. This includes the volume of rainwater, surface, and groundwater consumed, and the volume of water used to divert pollutants.
With the support of our independent third-party assessment partners, we can help you measure and reduce your water footprint.
