One Water

The international observance of World Water Day is an initiative that grew out of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de JaWorld Water Dayneiro. It inspired the creation of our EarthSayers special collection around the idea of "One Water." It addresses a wide range of issues including, but not limited to water supply, security, rights, and pollution.

The organization, One Water, puts the challenge succinctly: "Providing clean and safe water to everybody around the world is among the greatest challenges facing us today." Two other organizations asking for support are charity:water and water.org.

Making the Business Case for Water Stewardship by Ecolab's Christophe Beck

Ecolab's Christophe Beck at 2014 World Water Summit published on March 26, 2015 by 3BL Media.

On November 6, 2014, Ecolab joined an esteemed group of world leaders at The Economist's 2014 World Water Summit in London. At the event, Christophe Beck, executive vice president and president for international regions at Ecolab, spoke about how to make the business case for water stewardship.

Water scarcity is a major challenge for communities around the world. For businesses, it is increasingly a constraint to growth. Insufficient access to clean water can significantly disrupt operations, increase costs and curtail growth. Failure to manage water-related risks can result in reduced revenues, higher operating costs, and lower investor confidence that can restrict access to capital, or result in higher financing rates or higher insurance premiums. It can also have significant implications on local communities. Published on Mar 26, 2015 by 3BL Media
