As water scarcity begins to affect businesses, water management strategies are becoming a necessity, and in some cases the norm. Verdantix, a sustainable business analyst firm, recently published a report called the State of Global Corporate Water Strategies to find out how corporations are approaching the issue.
Verdantix found that most firms implementing water strategy are doing so to maximize their own cost effectiveness. Such companies include Coca-Cola and SABMiller, among others. Some, however, such as H&M, Levi's, and PepsiCo are take water management even further, endorsing water stewardship and considering ecosystem protection in their policy development.
