Join us for an insightful discussion around water risks and the available solutions that help companies avoid potential disruption of business operations.
The World Economic Forum (WEF) lists the global water crisis as the biggest threat facing the planet over the next decade. Corporations are increasingly being exposed to water risks related to supply chain disruptions, consumer perception, reputation, regulatory and operational risks. These risks can significantly compromise operations and generate extremely high costs.
This event is free, however online registration is required. The event will be held in English and accompanied by a light lunch.
