Water Stewardship = ROI: Latest on The Guardian
Water is the new carbon, as I state in my latest article on Guardian Sustainable Business. While many companies have tackled issues related to energy, I argue that water should be on companies’ radar. It is not just about checking the boxes to prove that a firm is one engaged in CSR (corporate social responsibility). An investment in water efficiency measures actually can gain a company an impressive return on investment (ROI). My article highlights Campbell Soup Company. In a talk with David Stangis, he explained to me how for Campbell’s, water stewardship is about building relationships with local communities, energy efficiency, and good business sense. Read the full article on The Guardian, and follow David Stangis, the VP of CSR at Campbell Soup Company, on Twitter. The Water Hub on The Guardian is well worth your time, too.
