We analysed corporate responses to CDP’s 2015, 2016 and 2017 water information requests, focusing on responses related to the provision of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH).

The disclosures reveal a strengthening business case for companies investing in WASH. And analysis of CDP’s data clearly shows that lack of management or mismanagement of WASH issues can have detrimental socio-economic impacts for companies, whereas those addressing WASH issues see significant business benefits.

Read our brief to learn how and why WASH risks are impacting on businesses, how WASH-related opportunities can benefit them, how corporate action can help achieve Sustainable Development Goal 6, and how your business can integrate WASH into corporate strategies to make a lasting positive difference to people's lives.
