The CEO Water Mandate : an Initiative by Business Leaders in Partnership With the International Community

}

Summary

This initiative grew out of a highly collaborative partnership between the United Nations Global Compact, the Government of Sweden and a group of committed companies and specialized organizations dealing with the problems of water scarcity and sanitation. Launched at the Leaders Summit in July 2007, it is designed as a private-public initiative with a focus on developing strategies and solutions to contribute positively to the emerging global water crisis. The CEO Water Mandate will seek to engage a critical mass of companies from around the world, willing to undertake serious efforts, in partnership with other stakeholders, to address this challenge. Whenever possible, this initiative will coordinate efforts and work with existing water programs – both global and local – in order to maximize impact.
