CDP's water program works to catalyse action to improve water security globally.

A stable supply of good quality fresh water can no longer be gaurenteed in many regions. A 40% global shortfall in supply is expected by 2030. Business as usual water management will put at risk $63 trillion or 1.5 times today's global economy.

CDP's water program motivates companies to disclose and reduce their environmental impacts, and accelerate the use of this data by influential decision makers to better mitigate risk, capitalize on opportunities and make investment decisions that drive action towards a more sustainable world.
