Resource Overview

This financial modeling tool helps businesses factor water scarcity into decisions that support business growth and help ensure availability of water resources for future generations (Ecolab, 2020). For each site, the tool provides assessments of: incoming water risks (monetary value of human health and ecosystems and the future cost of incoming water treatment); outgoing water risk (monetary value of the outgoing water pollution on human health and ecosystems and the future costs of water treatment); potential revenue at risk (monetary value of the impacts of water use versus availability based on water required to do business); and enterprise risk profile (assessment of each facility’s risk based on the three-year projected output growth and location specific water stress).
