Corporate Water Strategies
A new book by Deloitte’s Will Sarni
Until very recently water has been viewed in many countries - not just Australia - as a minimal operational cost and not a strategic issue.
With increasing awareness by investors and other stakeholders that water scarcity represents a very real business risk and opportunity, water is emerging as a critical issue for both corporations and the public sector across much of the globe.
Will Sarni, Deloitte US Practice Leader, Enterprise Water Strategy, has authored a new book – titled Corporate Water Strategies which deals with global water issues and the value for organisations in developing and implementing a water strategy. This value is discussed not just from the perspective of managing physical, reputational and regulatory water risks but in terms of uncovering potential new products and services
Will has over 30 years’ experience in providing sustainability and environmental consulting services to global companies in all industry sectors and previously authored Greening Brownfields (McGraw-Hill, 2009).
Corporate Water Strategies discusses:
- Why water is a critical business issue for organisations which now face water risk to their operations and brands
- How new concepts such as embedded water and virtual water are forcing organisations to think differently about how they use water to manufacture products
- How organisations need to develop a water strategy and manage it as a key business issue to capture the real value of water
- How organisations can develop partnerships to implement water strategies.
