Demands on water resources are growing rapidly, creating concerns about water availability and quality and potential impacts on society, industry, and ecosystem health. Stewardship of water resources means understanding water use and associated risks due to water scarcity and pollution, and taking action to help ensure that water is managed sustainably as a shared resource. LimnoTech helps corporate clients understand their water use and associated impacts and risks, supports development of science-based response strategies, and facilitates partnerships to successfully implement impactful stewardship actions.
Global companies facing operational or supply chain water constraints know that optimizing water use and protecting water resources makes good business sense. We work with companies to help them better understand their water footprint and associated risks in operations and throughout their supply chains. We help them develop water strategies and set and achieve time-bound goals with quantitative metrics to improve water efficiency and protect critical source watersheds. This work includes identifying investment and innovation opportunities that mitigate environmental risk and impact, and demonstrate commitment to environmental and social responsibility.
Where relevant, we apply peer-reviewed methods to quantify the value of benefits achieved through interventions, and incorporate market-based strategies such as pollutant trading. We also help businesses understand and limit corporate risk exposure from climate change and future changes in freshwater availability and quality. Through this work, we have developed strong and trusted relationships with global companies and their NGO partners including World Wildlife Fund and The Nature Conservancy.
