In 2030, few of us will need a driverless car or reusable space rocket, but every household and every enterprise will need sustainably managed water and sanitation services to survive and thrive.

Join us for an interactive dialogue among companies addressing some of our most common questions and collective challenges and opportunities regarding water stewardship. We'll discuss what water stewardship is, what comes next on companies' water stewardship journeys, the ecosystem of organizations recognized as water stewards and how they relate to one another, as well as tools to take your water stewardship to the next level—such as the Alliance for Water Stewardship Standard. On the eve of World Water Day on 22 March and the United Nations Water Conference in New York City, you’ll have a chance to dialog with other companies, build knowledge and capacity, share best practices, and connect to the themes of the forthcoming UN Water Action Agenda.

What You Will Learn:

  • How to create dialogue with other companies regarding water stewardship
  • How to build your company’s knowledge and capacity for water stewardship
  • Best practices in water stewardship
  • The themes of the forthcoming UN Water Action Agenda
