CDP Global Water Report 2013: a need for a step change in water risk management

CDP Global Water Report 2013. This report establishes that a misguided approach to water related risk management has become entrenched as business as usual. Corporate focus is too often directed at water use, reduction, recycling or reuse, largely in direct operations only. This is an inadequate response to increasingly immediate substantive water risks threatening shareholder value. Companies must instead strive for water stewardship but a significant step change is required if stewardship is to be truly achieved. This report is written to help investors take a leading role in educating and guiding companies on the issue.
