CDP Water Disclosure Global Report 2011 Released

Report shows water presents a substantial business risk and opportunity.

UK based Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) released its  Water Disclosure Global Report. A full copy of the report can be found here.

CDP represents 354 investors with assets of US$43 trillion.

According to the report, the majority (59%) of respondents have identified water as a substantial risk to their business. Nearly 2/3rds (63%) of the respondents see water-related opportunities, including cost-reductions via increased water efficiency. Despite these opportunities, water-related issues receive less attention than climate change at the board level.
