Setting an internal price focused on the true value of water helps leaders better understand and manage risk
Too often, water is seen as a low-cost commodity—and not the precious resource vital to life and business that it is. This mismatch is due in part to how much organizations pay for the water they use. The end price of water is often undervalued and divorced from local realities, meaning it does not adequately account for scarcity or quality concerns. In fact, water can be relatively inexpensive in areas that are highly water stressed. If left unaddressed, this underappreciation of water exposes organizations to a host of risks.

When the first draft of history is written, last November’s COP26 climate summit may be viewed as a turning point. Not for its concrete outcomes, but the shift in public sentiment that commitments are no longer enough, and corporations must do more to solve our world’s water and climate challenges. It is increasingly clear that the window for action is limited, and it is time to move from commitments to measurable action and demonstrable progress. This effort will require coordination and collaboration across industry.
