"Not only can water float a boat - it can sink it." - Chinese proverb

The FT Water Summit is a unique event on the global financial and water calendars. Targeted at CEOs and CFOs of companies that depend on water as an input in their products, processes, and/or supply chains as well as banks and investors and global financial institutions, the summit looks at water from a corporate perspective.

With water risk rising rapidly up the corporate agenda, the first two summits focused primarily on how to respond to this risk. But the 2018 summit will be different.

In association with WWF, one of the driving forces behind corporate water stewardship, the summit will focus on business and investment opportunities – including bankable water projects and other innovative financial solutions (blue bonds and water stewardship funds etc) as well as how companies can collaborate to solve shared water challenges and generate better returns on investments in river basins where they operate.

With water stress increasing and concern growing in boardrooms about water risks to operations and investments, the 2018 FT Water Summit will provide investors and corporate leaders with another perspective – turning risk into an opportunity by investing in sustainable water projects and/or transforming their corporate water management could unleash a flood of returns. It would also boost progress towards achieving SDG6 (‘Water for All’) – a target that many of the world’s leading companies have signed up to.

The FT Water Summit Story

Not only can water float a boat – it can sink it”– Chinese proverb

The World Economic Forum has ranked water as one of the top global risks in terms of impact for the past six years. Growing populations and economies along with the impacts of climate change will only increase the challenges of water scarcity and quality, leaving companies facing greater operational, regulatory and reputational water risks to their assets, investments, brand, credibility, credit rating and bottom line.

The FT Water Summit was launched in 2015 with the aim of providing practical, action-focused content to help companies whose businesses rely on a dependable supply of clean water to succeed. It is solutions-focused and devotes attention to the ways in which water can give competitive edge, how it can be an enabler of growth, and how companies can work collaboratively with governments, NGOs and local communities.
