“The past does not point to the future as China has entered a new era”

Regulating for a future with water will disrupt multiple sectors and global trade to forge an era of business unusual. China has already started revamping business with its march to a ‘Beautiful China’. Re-prioritising sectors through Made in China 2025 or transitioning dirty and thirsty industries to circular economies, plus rethinking trade with the Belt & Road Initiative are all part of this. Such actions will cause resource volatility plus disrupt supply chains.

New regulations mean that risks are material and more imminent than you think. Disruptions are already being felt and questions around the validity of current business models being raised. Don’t be blindsided, get Intelligence By Sector or discover macro perspectives in Water-nomics.

Ultimately, transitional and disruptive risks from China’s water-nomic policies and regulations climate will mean how corporates and banks view risks needs to be redefined. They will need to undertake water risk exposure assessments of their portfolios to protect and waterproof their assets – more on this in Water Risk Valuation.

In the era of business unusual, there are no models to ‘copy & paste’. The key is to navigate these complex & interlinked risks across sectors so as to turn these risks into opportunities. See the Big Picture or get The Latest on this conversation.
