We provided an extractive company with structured and holistic analysis of water risks across six of its key operating territories. The analysis formed a major part of a company-wide programme reviewing the organisation’s approach to water stewardship.
The client needed to develop an in-depth understanding of the spectrum of water-related risks across the business. An operating presence across five continents meant it faced very different water stewardship challenges both between countries and at different sites within countries.
By combining our data and in-depth research, the client was provided with a comprehensive report presenting context- and catchment-specific information for each operational area. The analytical framework supported a comparison of the water stewardship context and associated water risks across the named sites using a criteria-based assessment framework.
Our analysis enabled the client to better understand water-related risks facing the business and how these risks could unfold over the long term. The outputs were used to foster internal stakeholder buy-in to the company’s wider water stewardship programme.
