Business leadership on groundwater, an enabler of sustainable growth

Earth Security Group

The session seeks to catalyse the next generation of business leadership on groundwater. The Earth Security Group is presenting a CEO Briefing: Global Depletion of Aquifers, with a study of how 75 large multinationals communicate their groundwater risks, identifying areas of opportunity for corporate CEOs to support transboundary groundwater governance.

The event will explore:

1. Practical examples of how business can impact groundwater governance in key geographies.
2. Views on opportunities for cross-sector collaboration to support groundwater decision-making, evaluating potential roles of existing corporate initiatives.
3. The interest of multinational corporations to deepen cross-sector collaboration opportunities to improve decision-making on groundwater;
4. The practical modes of operation and opportunities for the sharing data and other capabilities across the private sector, the policy community and governments to enable policy-makers to make better decisions.
