Deloitte US has teamed up with non-for-profit organisation Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) to help drive comparable reporting on water usage.
Deloitte US enterprise water strategy director and practice leader William Sarni said the fact that most companies are unsure of their water footprint within their supply chain underlines the need for an enterprise water strategy.
“With many companies, this strategy development process reveals opportunities for new products and technologies. We are confident that this relationship with CDP will help enable us to bring water stewardship to the forefront of business strategy and drive broad-scale innovation along the way,” he said.
Deloitte US said the agreement with CDP will, “entail collaboration on water stewardship thought leadership and will leverage insight gleaned from Deloitte member firms’ years of work with some of the world’s largest companies”.
