WWF and DEG Launch Water Risk Filter

by China Water Risk 28 March, 2012

28, March 2012 – WWF and DEG launch the Water Risk Filter, an online water risk tool with data sheets and interactive maps of 235 countries to help businesses and investors address water-related risks.

The tool is free and it uniquely offers a practical, robust toolkit to help companies and investors mitigate risk. It is also incredibly easy to use. Geared specifically for non-experts, it guides users through a simple pre-assessment survey that uses industry and geographic information to determine in less than five minutes if additional evaluation is recommended.

We believe this is a timely tool given increasing investor and business focus on water risk arising from China’s water crisis. China Water Risk  is pleased to be named as one of the six knowledge resources:

  • CDP Water Disclosure Global Report 2011
  • China Water Risk
  • WWF- Investigating shared risk in water
  • Lloyd’s and WWF- World Water Scarcity
  • The Ceres Aqua Gauge
  • Water Footprint Network: Global Water Scarcity
