According to U.N Global Compact, global water challenges, such as water scarcity and pollution, are having an increasingly negative impact on businesses. Now more than ever, companies need to assess their water performance and the watersheds in which they operate in order to address these challenges and ultimately stay in business.

Freshwater consumption worldwide has more than doubled since World War II and is expected to rise another 25 percent by 2030. More than one-third of the world’s population – roughly 2.4 billion people – live in water-stressed countries and by 2025 the number is expected to rise to two-thirds. Declining water quality is an acute problem around the world due to agricultural runoff, industrial wastewater, improper disposal of human waste, and many other issues. Climate change is affecting the hydrologic cycle, leading to more frequent extreme weather events, such as droughts and floods.
