The global water crisis is accelerating, with grave environmental, social, and economic implications. To meet the scale of the problem, all sectors must be part of the solution.
At the historic UN Water Conference in March 2023, over 50 leading companies and founding partners united with the CEO Water Mandate's Water Resilience Coalition to join a shared vision: achieving collective positive water impact in 100 water-stressed basins around the world by 2030. That vision has evolved into a movement. More companies have joined, action is advancing, and additional initiatives are aligning with our shared ambition.
The Open Call welcomes all companies to commit to supporting the shared vision. Whether a conglomerate with a large value chain or a smaller enterprise within that value chain, the Open Call offers a pathway to action.
Together, we are building a water resilient world. Join the Open Call to get started today.
Note: UN Global Compact signatories that endorse the CEO Water Mandate and want to join the movement will receive recognition as participants in the Forward Faster - Water Resilience initiative.
The private sector has enormous untapped potential to advance SDG 6. The International Water Stewardship Community has prepared a joint statement. It outlines 6 key solution areas where business action can have the biggest impact, when supported by government advocacy and partnership. The joint statement identifies specific pathways for the public sector to help unleash that potential and is a companion document to the Business Leaders' Open Call to Accelerate Action on Water.
