The CEO Water Mandate mobilizes business leaders to advance water stewardship, sanitation, and the Sustainable Development Goals – in partnership with the United Nations, governments, peers, civil society, and others.

Endorsers of the CEO Water Mandate recognize that they can identify and reduce critical water risks to their businesses, seize water-related opportunities, and contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals. The Mandate offers a unique platform to share best and emerging practices and to forge multi-stakeholder partnerships to address challenges related to water scarcity, water quality, water governance, and access to water and sanitation.

The Mandate Secretariat supports the initiative’s mission in many ways:

  • Develops research, guidance, and tools that advance corporate water stewardship
  • Convenes multi-stakeholder events to identify, explore, and solve key water challenges
  • Facilitates meaningful collective action to improve conditions in at-risk river basins around the world

The CEO Water Mandate Secretariat

The CEO Water Mandate is a special initiative of the UN Secretary-General and the UN Global Compact, implemented in partnership with the Pacific Institute. These key partners work together as the CEO Water Mandate Secretariat.

The UN Global Compact is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, with more than 12,000 corporate participants and stakeholders from more than 140 countries. The UN Global Compact is based on ten principles in the areas of human rights, labour standards, the environment, and anti-corruption.

The Pacific Institute is one of the world’s leading nonprofit research groups. The Institute creates and advances solutions to the world’s water challenges.
