Around the world there are an increasing number of certification standards that companies use to demonstrate sustainability and programmes where companies can publicly report their progress.
As a key issue sustainable water use is now part of a global standard under the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS). In addition a reporting framework exist under the Carbon Disclosure project (CDP) water program aimed at publicly reporting stewardship of water to corporate investors.
Whist the Services, Infrastructure and utilities sectors don’t normally seek certification or report themselves but their customers often do.
