BEF scopes, develops, supports, and designs environmental water programs and projects across the U.S. The organization has been instrumental in building an NGO-led environmental water stewardship movement around Western Water issues and volumetric flow solutions. BEF collaborated in the creation of the nation’s only program (Change the Course) that provides businesses the opportunity to balance their water footprint by supporting projects that restore environmental flows, and has created criteria and program strategies to guide corporate, agency, and NGO work to restore, monitor, and track environmental and volumetric water benefits. In addition to working in the environmental water stewardship space, BEF has deep experience working in partnership with businesses to develop and support net zero implementation strategies and implement programs and projects to achieve corporate water stewardship, restoration or replenishment objectives. BEF currently participates in extensive relationships with funders, agencies, and NGOs designing and implementing environmental water stewardship projects. BEF has reviewed, supported, and tracked projects with a broad portfolio of NGOs and BEF has extensive knowledge of current project development opportunities across the U.S. Our projects can be found here: https://businessforwater.org/projects
