C-Suite Perspectives on the Value of Water

Hosted by Value of Water Campaign National Association of Counties National League of Cities

Every business is a water reliant business. Without safe, reliable water and wastewater infrastructure, stores close and assembly lines grind to a halt. Water is also a main ingredient in our products and the processes we use to build them. Businesses rank water as a top corporate concern and a priority investment for a secure supply chain. As our water infrastructure ages, the status quo is no longer an option, and businesses are finding creative ways to use, reuse, and manage water safely and sustainably. By prioritizing holistic water management into business models, companies can enhance decision making, reduce costs, manage long-term water-related risks, improve resiliency and competitiveness, attract investor interest, and enhance their brand and reputation.

Join the Value of Water Campaign and senior private sector executives for a discussion on how companies are driving innovative water management practices and navigating the challenges of today’s complex water landscape. This event is hosted in partnership with the National Association of Counties and the National League of Cities.
