Focusing on sustainability is a must for businesses in today’s environment – economic, social and environmental. The list of reasons corporations are increasingly more focused on sustainability ranges from adding brand value and meeting consumer demands to attracting top talent and increasing efficiency, but the list of how companies can actively become more sustainable is equally expansive. In a world where climate change and global warming is directly contributing to the number of droughts seen in the United States and across the world, there has been a shift among companies to set water efficiency policies.
A report by Refinitiv published in 2019 found that the number of companies with emissions reduction policies had gone up 56 percent since five years prior – right before the world had to adjust to a new normal as a result of a global pandemic. The same report saw that during the same timeframe there was a 25 percent rise in water efficiency policies and suggested that water efficiency could be the next big corporate sustainability trend.
As we look to a post-COVID world, with employees returning back to work, companies will once again feel the pressure to focus on sustainability, including water efficiency. This is further reinforced by the World Economic Forum’s 2020 Global Risk Report that puts water crises among the top five greatest risks society will face over the next 10 years.
But how do companies become more water-efficient when revamping their sustainability policies? When creating new water efficiency policies, corporations will need to examine everything from where the water they use to create their products is coming from to how much water is being used to maintain their operations. Furthermore, the UN suggests that it is essential for companies to thoroughly examine their water footprint in order to help prevent a global water crisis.
So, what can you do to make your company more water-efficient?
Corporate sustainability, and therefore water efficiency, is dependent on leadership taking accountability and setting policies that trickle down throughout their business. While seeing results when creating or updating water efficiency policies won’t happen overnight, companies can hit the ground running as their offices begin to open back up by actively doing the following:
Regardless of where your company is at in becoming more sustainable and reducing your water consumption, it is essential to begin examining how you can become more efficient and putting policies in place. Doing so will not only help the environment but will also help attract customers and valuable talent.
