Water Summit

In association with WWF, Boston Consulting Group (BCG), Reuters Breakingviews, CERES, AB InBev and the Deutsche Borse, the Water Summit is a unique event on the global water and finance calendars. The high level event will focus on the business and investment risks and opportunities linked to water and climate change under the theme:
Finance and Business Resilience under Climate Change:
Water risk and opportunity


This year’s summit will highlight the need for financial institutions to adopt a new approach to water – one that incorporates a stronger approach to risk management while also supporting enhanced opportunities to mobilize debt and equity to invest and profit from the need for more resilient societies and economies.
