How can investors be ambassadors for water?

25 augusti 2021 @ 17:00 - 18:00 CEST

In 2019 a project between Swesif and the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) was initiated to create a framework that helps members understand water-related risks better in connection with investments, a way to handle corporate governance issues around water more qualitatively and a guide to various types of useful tools around the global water issue that can affect individual investments.

At the end of 2020, SIWI presented initial conclusions and thoughts from the project during a webcast seminar for Swesif members. On August 25, in connection with World Water Week in Stockholm, SIWI together with CDP, who also has contributed to the project will present the final report during the webinar ”How can investors be ambassadors for water?”

Session Description

By deciding what companies to invest in, financial players have an enormous impact on the global economy. In order to achieve the SDGs, all stakeholders need to have all hands on deck. The financial sector is no exception. What if they had the tools and capacity to use their leverage to push companies to use water more efficiently and pollute less?

This is what we are going to explore in our session. What is hindering investors from taking on this role? What can be done with available tools and methods?

SIWI Swedish Water House has, together with the Swedish Sustainable Investment Forum (Swesif) and CDP, been exploring this in a multi-stakeholder group. The findings from this project will be explored during the discussion.
