Businesses for Water Security in the Noyyal-Bhavani is a collaboration among the CEO Water Mandate and several apparel sector Mandate-Endorsing companies to advance apparel sector leadership in water stewardship. Apparel sector companies leading in sustainability have already made considerable progress on operational water efficiency across their value chain, and the next step on the water stewardship progression is establishing partnerships within river basins to collectively advance sustainable water management. The Mandate is working with Levi Strauss & Co, Gap Inc., PVH Corp, and other organizations to establish a place-based collective action project around water stewardship in two river subbasins where the brands operate with increasing business water risk, the Noyyal and the Bhavani. The initiative will enable scaled impact on water security in the region and will build off of existing work by basin stakeholders.

This innovative initiative features collective action by the private sector on water stewardship in the Noyyal and Bhavani subbasin; the collaboration of several companies, NGOs, and other stakeholders to reduce water risk within apparel supply chains and increase basin water security is an innovative and pioneering aspect of the water stewardship progression. Outputs from the project so far include a collection of apparel-specific water stewardship resources and projects uploaded to the Water Stewardship Toolbox and Water Action Hub, a Noyyal-Bhavani basin water challenges assessment, and an apparel factory and mill facility water management assessment. Potential subsequent activities include assisting apparel facilities in setting contextual water targets and pursuing shared water stewardship opportunities as well as documenting lessons learned from the project to inform future water target setting work. Companies interested in water stewardship in this region or more broadly can contact the CEO Water Mandate to learn more.
