The inaugural FT Water Summit will gather senior practitioners from the corporate sphere to talk about the innovative and collaborative approaches to water productivity that are giving the companies they work for competitive edge.
Water is of strategic importance to food and beverage companies, retailers, consumer goods, textile companies, energy companies, and semiconductor manufacturers. As the global watershed finds itself under more and more pressure, water quality and scarcity issues pose acute business risk to many of these companies and industries. Water is having an increasing impact on a company’s brand, credibility, credit rating, and insurance costs. Managing water risks – both in in-house operations, and through the supply chain – has a very real effect on the bottom line.
This solutions-focused conference will discuss how corporations are making water their business, how they are transforming water risk into opportunity, and on the collaborative ways in which companies around the world are working with the broader water community to deal with scarcity and enable growth.
