This new discussion paper from the CEO Water Mandate and Hindustan Unilever Foundation (HUF) explores the linkages between corporate water stewardship practice and Sustaniable Development Goal 6 on water and sanitation. It makes the case for a “T-shaped” approach to water goals and collaborative partnerships between businesses, NGOs, governments, communities, and others to address shared water challenges. In particular, it takes a close look at past and current water partnerships in India from Hindustan Unilever Foundation’s portfolio. In this paper, we hear about effective action from the Watershed Organization Trust (WOTR), a partnership between Rajshree Sugars and Chemicals Limited and Solidaridad Network to address water challenges in the sugarcane sector, the efforts of People’s Action for National Integration (PANI) to engage woman farmer’s in water conservation, and more. This paper shines a light on the many ways businesses can work with others to advance shared goals on water and work toward the achievement of our Sustainable Development Goals.
