The CEO Water Mandate team is gearing up for an exciting week at Stockholm World Water Week 2018. We look forward to sharing our insights and engaging in peer learning …
In 2014, the Mandate helped found the California Water Action Collaborative (CWAC) – unfortunately but affectionately termed “the quack.”
I have found that businesses tend to focus water stewardship efforts within their owned-and-operated facilities, because this is where they have the most influence and ability to affect changes in practice. However, the greatest water risks – and the greatest opportunities for improved management – often lie in companies’ supply chains.
Water crises have been among the top five global risks in each of the last seven years, according to the World Economic Forum. This year is no exception.
Water is top of mind for many companies when looking to 2018.

Today we are putting more pressure on freshwater resources than ever. Between a rapidly growing population and a shifting climate, water stress – and therefore water risk – is increasing around the world.
