Water sustainability and the financial sector: lessons learned from assessing major investors in the Netherlands

Investment decisions made by investors today greatly affect the state and shape of tomorrow’s water resources. Yet the role of this key actor group is under-emphasized in current water stewardship discourse. In this webinar, Rick will present findings of a recent study that assessed whether and how investors include water sustainability criteria in their investment decisions. He will cover (1) the assessment framework based on Water Footprint Assessment principles, (2) its application to twenty large investors in the Netherlands and their subsequent ranking, and (3) lessons learned and ways forward to help investors adopt water sustainable investment practices.
