In this FIBS Webinar you will
- hear about the variety of water risks your company should be aware of
- find out how your company can benefit from addressing these risks
- learn about the practical tools available for companies to explore the water risks and develop robust water strategies
Water is the lifeblood of the global economy but a warming world continues to put our water supplies at risk. Whilst the price of water remains cheap for businesses, the financial impacts of droughts, floods or tighter water regulations can be significant.
Water risks – from direct operations and throughout the supply chain – are becoming an increasingly important for companies and investors alike and those that do not account for the financial value of these risks are likely to make ill-informed investment decisions, affecting long-term business growth, communities, and the environment.
Join this webinar given by CDP and WWF experts to discover what steps you can take to safeguard your company against water risks and improve your corporate water stewardship.
You’ll hear how CDP disclosure can send a positive signal about your company’s water practices to investors and other stakeholders. And learn how CDP’s water security questionnaire can be used as a framework to develop a robust water strategy by addressing water-related risks and capitalizing on opportunities.
We will also outline how WWF’s Water Risk Filter tool enables companies to explore, assess, value, and respond to water risks across their operations and supply chain, which in turn can help them improve their disclosure to CDP’s water security questionnaire.
Working on the Corporate Engagement team at CDP, Olwen Smith is responsible for supporting publicly-listed European companies in their annual disclosure to CDP’s questionnaires. She leads on corporate engagement in the Nordic region and specialises in the topic of water security.
As WWF Water Risk Filter Project Manager, Ariane Laporte-Bisquit is responsible for overseeing the development and implementation of the Water Risk Filter strategy. She leads on the engagement with investor and corporate users of the tool in collaboration with the wider WWF network. Before joining WWF, she led CDP’s water security work in Europe and worked previously on several water-related projects in South Africa, Bangladesh, and French Guiana.
Dr. Suvi Sojamo has nearly ten years of experience researching and developing principles and practices of corporate engagement on water, both in Finland and internationally. She is a visiting research fellow at Aalto University and has previously collaborated with WWF, UN Global Compact CEO Water Mandate and Water Witness International, among others. Suvi led the development and is currently supporting the implementation of Finnish Water Stewardship Commitment.
