#Climate Change, #Strategy and Integration


In a growing number of geographies, including São Paulo, California, and India, businesses are facing serious water crises. Companies depend on water—within operations, across supply chains, and for employees’ basic needs. Water is both a core business issue and a key concern for regulators, investors, and neighboring communities.

In this webinar, which is open to BSR members and will be included in a live event in São Paulo with BSR partner REVER, speakers will lay out the root causes and business implications of water crises. They will then explore examples of and approaches to corporate water issues. Attendees can expect to take away lessons on how to craft forward-looking strategies for water.

BSR and REVER will hold a parallel event in São Paulo on May 27 from 1:30-5:30 p.m. (local time). You are invited to send locally based colleagues to the event. Please contact Antonio Albuquerque at aalbuquerque.ic@bsr.org to request an invitation.

Speakers

  • Michael Alexander, Global Head, Water, Environment, and Agriculture Sustainability, Diageo
  • Ellen Silva, Senior Manager, Applied Sustainability, General Mills
