CDP Water: An important sustainability reporting on the rise
In 2010 CDP started to invite companies to report on water-related risks and opportunities, according the growing expectations by investors, civil society and NGOs for transparency and quantitative measurement of progress. The goal is to catalyse action on corporate water stewardship to safeguard water resources and address the global water crisis.
The CDP water program responds to the ever-growing need to address the global water crisis. Many regions of the world suffer water shortages – and as a result, companies are asked to disclose their impacts on climate change and, more specifically, their water management practices.
