The entire world runs on water – clean, reliable water supplies are vital for industry, agriculture and energy production. With three billion people joining the global consumer class over the next two decades, the demand for natural resources is naturally expected to boost. Furthermore, affordable access to water is increasingly under stress due to the confluence of population growth, urbanization, and climate change. Therefore, it is no surprise that the UN included clean water and sanitation for all around the globe in their SDG 6 – Clean water and sanitation for all people.
With this in mind, the Center for Responsible Business and Leadership (CRB) is organizing a Water Summit to be held online on 25 & 26 June 2020. The CRB aims to provide the attendees with an understanding of water and its intrinsic dependencies across businesses, involving the entire value chain of Sourcing, Production and Consumption.
Confirmed keynote speakers are Catarina de Albuquerque, CEO of UN Sanitation and Water for All, João Pedro Matos Fernandes, Minister of Environment and Climate Action of Portugal, Lesley Pories, Manager of Sector Strategy at Water.org and Prof. Filipe Santos, Dean of CATÓLICA-LISBON.
Panel participants are -amongst many others- L’Oréal, Veolia, Nestlé, Toyota and Microsoft.
