A Turning Tide: Tracking Corporate Action on Water Security

An increasing number of companies are finally becoming aware of the importance of water security and CDP's 2017 Global Water Report shows a 193 percent increase in businesses leading the way on water stewardship. But to deliver a water-secure world, water must be recognized as a fundamental asset for all companies and cities across the globe.

A Turning Tide aims to help companies and investors understand how they can play their part in delivering a water-secure world. It presents an analysis of the 2017 CDP water response data from a sample of 742 of the world's largest publicly-listed companies. The report sets out what a water-secure world looks like, the private sector actions required to achieve this vision and how companies are overcoming the barriers to water security — most importantly, the failure to properly value freshwater resources in today's economy.
