The Aqua Gauge: A framework for 21st century water risk management

The Aqua Gauge is a flexible Excel-based tool and associated methodology that provides companies with a complete picture of leading practice in water management, and a means to assess their own performance and progress. Best practices are distinguished by level of maturity from initial steps to leading practice through advanced progress helping companies communicate where they stand on the water stewardship journey. Jointly developed by Ceres, Irbaris, IRRC and the WBCSD, the Gauge also provides a robust framework and methodology for corporate sustainability professionals to engage with institutional investors on water risk and opportunity management, and a resource to inform companies of their shareholders disclosure needs.
